What To See And Do This Autumn Across The Malverns

Activities | Family Fun | Food & Drink

Malvern Hills

This Autumn, from markets to lodges, cookery classes to concerts there’s something for everyone. And of course, one of our favourite pastimes is going out on a walk with the crisp air on our faces, whilst listening to the rustle and crunch of autumn leaves beneath our feet. Please be prepared for whatever the weather – rain or shine as it’s quite changeable at the moment. Our sunrises and sunsets are pretty incredible at this time of year, so make sure you venture out at dawn or dusk to see the sky lit up in a variety of pink and orange hues. Just another reason to want to stay longer!

Autumn Walks

Visit the Malverns Website has various walks across the Malverns to take in the range of colours of Autumn. From the copious green spaces as they turn brown, gold and orange to the sweeping majesty of Autumn from the tops of the hills. Here are just a few suggestions, there are plenty more walks to discover.

Take in the gorgeous shades of autumn at National Trust at Croome and Witley Court (English Heritage), respectively. These stunning mansions are surrounded by rolling acres of grass and woodland that make for great walks for the whole family.

Health and Wellbeing Escapes
