Malvern Walking Festival


Description Of Walking Festival

The Malvern Hills area is famed for its dramatic hills and the pure spring water that flows from them. It fully deserves its designation as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The hills have been described as a mountain range in miniature; the eight mile ridge contains some of the oldest rocks in Britain and their craggy outline is reminiscent of the uplands further west into Wales. Back in 1884 parliament passed the Malvern Hills Act that gave the land under the jurisdiction of the Malvern Hills Conservators as open access on foot for all time. The Victorians constructed many of the paths that make walking the Malvern Hills such a delight. Today you can enjoy over 3000 acres of open countryside climbing to the highest point at Worcestershire Beacon or relax whilst quietly rambling along the wooded slopes. What better way could you find to enjoy the area than join us on a walk from the MALVERN WALKING FESTIVAL, now in its thirteenth year. This year we have 38 day walks varying in length from an informative one mile heritage walk around Malvern to the energetic 31 mile Worcestershire Way making its way from Bewdley back to Malvern. Our ever popular Discovery walk this year is six days from the Wye Valley at Tintern, taking in the Forest of Dean and Offa’s Dyke on its way back to Malvern. The Munch is back after its inaugural success last year.

  • If you enjoy walking, hiking, trekking or like to find out about a new village or town, or a new national park, walking festivals are excellent ways to see the different parts of the country with local guides. These events and festivals are often organised by local people who know the walks and the areas very well and more often than not are non-profit events, meaning the walks are either free or only a small amount of money.Read more »
