The Malvern Hills are an ancient, beautiful and unspoilt range of hills in the English midlands, close to the Welsh border, about 10 miles in length, situated mainly in the county of Worcestershire, but also Herefordshire and a part of northern Gloucestershire.  From the Worcestershire Beacon, the highest point of the hills at 1395 feet (425 m) spectacular views of up to 13 surrounding counties can be seen – the Welsh mountains, and on a clear day the cathedrals of the three counties – Worcester, Gloucester and Hereford.

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.
