Start planning where to do your Christmas shopping with our handy guide to promote our wonderful independent shops across The Malverns. As part of our Reassuringly Local campaign, we’ve created lists of independent shops in the various categories below, so you can find the perfect shop to purchase that unique present for your friends and family.
A Great Selection of Independent Shops
You can either take the time to walk around the shops and browse in each of the independent retailers in each of the town centres Malvern (Great Malvern, Malvern Link and Barnards Green), Tenbury Wells and Upton upon Severn, or click on the links below to find out what shops are where, to make that special trip. Whether you’re after arts and crafts; books; antiques and curios; clothing, shoes and haberdashery; homeware; jewellery; local food and drink; or the latest in DIY tools, you’ll find it right here in The Malverns.
CHRISTMAS TREE FARMS
The fertile soils around The Malverns brings the phase ‘Christmas tree’ to life, with three large Christmas tree farms where you are able to buy direct from the farm. Garden Centres, farm shops (see Food and Drink Shops) and other local stockists are available. Did you know if you buy a Christmas Tree direct from the farm, it is fresher so the needles tend to take longer to fall?
