Welcome to MalvernTrail

A chance to enjoy the natural and cultural delights of the countryside and towns on and around the Malvern Hills, easily accessible in the Heart of England and also in reach of Welsh border country.

MalvernTrail information pages should be mobile friendly (using WordPress format) but there may still be some links to old website pages – please use the navigation bar or the back button if you hit these. Some of the photo albums are in the old style.

The events listings are for locals and visitors alike. News items appear here sporadically, also check local social media reporting on News Trail (can be slow to load). See below for the latest news and events.
