The 19th annual Malvern Walking Festival is taking place from Saturday 25 May to Sunday 2 June 2024 and the website is now open for bookings.

All the walks take place in and around the Malvern Hills – officially designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty { AONB}- and some a bit further afield in Worcestershire and Herefordshire.   Which ? magazine  recently voted the Malvern Hills as having the best walks in the Midlands with 4 stars awarded for the walks and scenery.

There are over 70 walks available over the 9 days so plenty of choice for everyone. There are multi-day walks, all day walks, and shorter half-day walks either in the morning, afternoon or evening.  A lot of the walks are also themed including wartime Malvern, Malvern’s water, farming, quarrying, geology, local history, beer & pubs and gardens, to mention a few.

Each walk is graded from Gentle to Strenuous so no-one need let themselves in for more than they can handle.  There are walks ranging from 3 miles to 31 miles – for the keen there is the 20 mile Malvern Hills end2end and back , Worcester Way over 1 or 3 days and the best of the Three Choirs Way in 3 days.

Commenting on the programme, Festival Chairman Bob Baldwin said “The 2024 Festival is our biggest ever since we started in 2004 and we are now one of the biggest in southern England.  Last year we sold-out and received dozens of letters from walkers saying how much they enjoyed Malvern and the surrounds.  But we also received too many letters from walkers saying how disappointed they were not to be able to book onto their chosen ramble as it was sold out.  I therefore urge everybody to book early to save being disappointed.

We’re also pleased to confirm that we will again be supporting the Worcester Air Ambulance charity, although of course we sincerely hope we will have no need of their services anytime soon”
