Towns in the Malverns

Each of our towns has its own unique character – Malvern is largely Victorian in character and clings to the side of the ancient Malvern Hills – Upton upon Severn traces its roots further back into history due to its importance as one of the crossing points on the River Severn – and Tenbury Wells has a long agricultural history as one of the key market towns of the area with national importance for apples, mistletoe, holly and hops.
