The walks start from the Tourist Information Centre (TIC) at 10.30am on Saturdays (plus Monday 31 August, Monday 21 September and Monday 28 September 2020) until the end of September and last approximately 90 minutes. Sadly, due to the hilly nature of Great Malvern, these walks are unsuitable for the less mobile.
Adults: £5 (except 12 & 19 September, when the walk will be free but should still be booked in advance – see note 2 below)
Children under 14: FREE
You can book a place on a walk via the Tourist Information Centre (open Monday – Sunday, 10am – 1.15pm and 2pm – 4pm) or online at TicketSource.
Town walks are offered on the basis that they may be cancelled at times on account of changes in prevailing circumstances.
1) Malvern Civic Society is running a temporary programme of town walks to establish the level of interest in this preliminary stage of tourism reopening. This means that until further notice walks will be conducted on Saturdays only (plus Monday 31 August, Monday 21 September and Monday 28 September 2020), starting from 11 July.
2) Under social distancing the Civic Society is asking visitors to please book a place in advance where possible to guarantee a place where one is available.
3) All visitors on walks are required to wear masks/face coverings, which town guides will also be wearing.
The TIC is located at The Lyttelton Well Courtyard, 6 Church Street, Malvern WR14 2AY (close to the Lyttelton Well Bookshop & Cafe). Tel: 01684 892289
