Malvern

Worcestershire
Malvern is largely Victorian but its roots go back much further. Iron and Bronze Age forts and tracks ran along the hills and Malvern was only a collection of small cottages until the Middle Ages. The oldest parts of the town can be seen around the Priory Church which was founded in 1085 when Benedictine monks settled here and built a Priory, which was a daughter house to Westminster Abbey.

Evesham

Worcestershire
Evesham is a picturesque, riverside historic market town situated in the centre of the famous horticultural Vale of Evesham – the fruit and vegetable basket of England. From the tranquil banks of the river Avon to the undulating hills and peaceful wooded slopes of the Cotswolds, the Vale offers some of the prettiest countryside in the United Kingdom.

Kidderminster

Worcestershire
Home to the starting (and finishing point) for the world famous Severn Valley Heritage Railway, wonderful memories are made in this beautiful part of Worcestershire. The Town Hall – a beautiful Victorian building where speeches from eminent leaders such as a young Winston Churchill, Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin, explorer Earnest Shackleton and women’s rights campaigner Emmeline Pankhurst have echoed off its walls.

LOCAL CUISINE

Worcestershire lies between the Malvern Hills and the Cotswolds and is best known for its apples, including the Worcester Pearmain with its hint of strawberry - the Malvern Pudding is a traditional Georgian baked dish made with apples or other seasonal fruit and custard. Malvern water is a natural spring water from the Malvern Hills on the border of the counties of Herefordshire and Worcestershire in England.
