Malvern Things to Do

  • See Morgan cars being hand-made

    All you need are six people with an interest in hand-built cars (well, hand-built anything) and a bit of flexibility re dates. Call Morgan Motors and fix a date for a visit.Not only are you left to wander through the factory at your own pace (following the marked trail) but you can ask any of the workers questions about what they're doing, etc....

  • Malvern Museum - small but fascinating

    Malvern Museum is housed in the gateway to the former Malvern Priory, all that now remains of this Benedictine monastic house apart from the Priory church. It is a small museum, but interesting with rooms devoted to different periods in Malvern's history: the Medieval period, when the priory was a thriving monastic community; the late eighteenth...

  • Walking the tranquil hills.

    You can collect your thoughts while walking along through the magnificent scenery with fantastic views.There used to be a cafe on the top of the hill but, sadly, it was demolished. It quenched many a weery travellers thirst for numerous years. you have to bring your own refreshment with you these days.

    The Blue Bird has been a tea room for a long time. The composer Elgar, who lived in Malvern, visited it. But that isn't why you should go. You should visit it because it is simply the best tea room I have come across so far.

    It is on an upper floor, with windows giving a good view of the centre of Malvern. The rooms are pleasant, and the china is good-quality. There is a wide selection of teas and coffees available as well as breakfast and lunchtime snacks, and of course tea-time treats.

    Favorite Dish: We had the most delicious scones still warm from the oven, which came with a choice of jams (strawberry, raspberry, blackcurrant or greengage). Wonderful.

Malvern Nightlife

  • Nice old pub

    Traditional nice looking old pub which is well presented and very welcoming. There's comfortable seating with part of the pub given over to an eating area. The beer was good, they have three real ale pumps serving some local beers and the local CAMRA newsletter was available.

    There are 2 railway stations that serve Malvern, as the third (Malvern Wells) was closed and demolished in the 60's.

    Coming from the Birmingham direction, the first station you will arrive at is Malvern Link. The next station on the line is Great Malvern, and this is the station that you need to get off at for the town and also for the hills, as it saves extra walking.

    If you have an Ordinance Survey map of the area. (I recommend the 'Pathfinder range' of scale 1:25000 which is 2.5 inches to the Mile or 4cm to the kilometer ). You may wish to alight at Malvern Link and walk around to the hills by the different, longer route.

Malvern What to Pack

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If you go walking the hills, the weather can change in an instant. So take a warm waterproof covering with you.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Insect repellent in summer is an advantage when hill walking and I recommend 'Autan'. Available from chemists and good supermarkets.

    Photo Equipment: Camera and binoculars for views from the top.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: A drink or at least a bottle of water is needed in summer when hill walking as there is no cafe at the top any longer.

    Miscellaneous: An 'OS' 1:25000 'Pathfinder' map No. 1018 may be useful, and a compass.

    Portable comfort.

    On the sumit of the tallest hill there is a 'Toposcope'. This tells where all points of interest or importance lie and there compass bearing from that point.

    Favorite thing: Morgan cars are all hand made and, consequently, there is quite a waiting list for delivery.

    The picture shows the new Aero 8. The latest car in Morgan's range.
