Malvern Hills

Come fly a kite on the Malvern Hills!  Marvel in the wonderous views stretching out as the eye can see towards the Severn Plain in the East or towards the Black Mountains in Wales in the west. Whatever the weather, enjoy the experience of walking along the hills, in the summer you will definitely see a para-glider or more jumping from one of the many hills, if you are really lucky you may even spot a hot air balloon drifting over too! You can also head out into the Teme Valley to discover more picturesque countryside.

If flying is not for you, then there many other outdoor pursuits that you could follow, how about cycling the Elgar Route, that inspired one of Britain’s greatest composers, or exploring one of the many off road cycling routes that take you across the undulating hills? You can even trial a mountain bike over three trails via the Dirtworks Mountain Bike specialist shop, borrow one of their demo bikes to explore trails set along 13km of the ridge of the hills.

However, if you prefer a more leisurely outdoor pursuit then hire a boat from Severn Expeditions at Upton Marina and take a relaxing river cruise along the stunning River Severn, as you meander down the UK’s longest river see if you can spot the indigenous wildlife that live amongst the river bank. There are many fishing opportunities available here in Malvern, from river fishing to fully supported managed fisheries like the Leigh Sinton Fisheries. Whether you are a novice angler or a more experienced one, Malvern is a great place to indulge in a new or existing hobby.

Visitors are welcome to come and play at the Worcestershire Golf Club that is one of the best courses in the Midlands to play and is set at the foot of the Malvern Hills. Enjoy the impressive views of the Malvern Hills whilst playing a tranquil round of golf with your friends.

At anytime of the year when you visit the Malverns, there is always something to do outdoors with family, friends or on your own. This could be an exciting adrenaline-fuelled extreme sport or a more sedate calming activity, whatever you are looking for you are sure to find it here.
