The hills are famous for their spring water which can be collected at many of the numerous wells around the hills.
Another striking and quirkily individual feature of the Malverns are the original gas lamps which still light the streets at night.
Malvern has a long history of music and culture which continues today. Sir Edward Elgar lived in and around the Malverns Hills for most of his life and is buried at the foot of the hills. The Malvern Hills were the inspiration for much of his music and he spent many hours walking and cycling in the area.
Malvern is also famous for the Morgan motor car factory, where cars are still hand made today and are exported all over the world.
