England’s Best Views
And, we don’t think you’ll disagree. Come see for yourself!
But remember, it’s not all about the views from the top of the hills. The views from the lower slopes are also pretty spectacular too.
Also, don’t forget to spend time taking in the different views across to the Malvern Hills, because they also have the ‘WOW’ factor as you see 650 million years of history rise up out of the Severn and Teme river valleys.
The Malvern Hills, which divide the beautiful English countryside of Herefordshire and Worcestershire, are a great destination for walkers of all ages and abilities, whether you are interested in a gentle stroll along a tree-lined path or an energetic trek along the ridge of the Malvern Hills. The unspoilt Teme Valley offers a great range of walking in glorious countryside and the Severn valley has striking riverside walks with views of the Cotswold beyond.
