The activities we’ve listed below make us truly proud of our beautiful, unspoiled English surroundings in Worcestershire & Herefordshire area. Do they convince you to break free at Malvern View? 👇
1. Herefordshire Cathedral
Steeped in over 1000 years of English history, this phenomenal site is guaranteed to provide a mind-boggling day out and really get you in the English Tourism Week spirit (that’s a thing, right?).
Did you know that the Cathedral is home the Mappa Mundi, a map of the world created in 1300? It’s a listed UNESCO Memory of the World - so worth a visit, alongside all the other history on offer.
There’s so much more we can’t detail here - so check out the Cathedral’s website for more info.
2. The Malvern Hills
This breathtaking natural spectacle is an eight-mile ridge boasting some of the most stunning views in England; the Malvern Hills have even been described as a miniature mountain range.
The hills’ craggy outline is reminiscent of the uplands further west into Wales. George Mallory, the English mountaineer, walked here in preparation for his ascent of Everest - so there’s scarcely a better place for a good ol’ walk in celebration of English Tourism Week.
3. The Time Machine Museum of Science Fiction
England has left its mark on time travel, perhaps most famously with Doctor Who. So why not celebrate English Tourism Week surrounded by to the finest collection of television science fiction props and costumes in the UK? There’s Star Wars, Thunderbirds, Doctor Who and more; a must-visit for any TV sci-fi fans!
4. Queenswood & Bodenham Lake
If you pop along to Queenswood Country Park, you’ll be able to marvel at the 47-acre tree collection, containing over 1,200 rare and exotic trees from all over the world.
There’s also 123 acres of semi-natural ancient woodland - designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest - full of walking trails. Queenswood is the only designated country park in the county, one of England’s finest attractions for nature enthusiasts!
5. Hampton Court Castle and Gardens
The home of King Henry VIII, Hampton Court Castle and Gardens is another fantastic place to revel in English history. In 1514, money was lavished upon this area to create the finest palace in England - and the architect’s original designed remains respected.
There are a range of events for all the family to enjoy, with garden and wildlife activities throughout spring. Afterwards, perhaps pass the day in the estate’s beautiful ornamental gardens. To discover everything on at Hampton Court Castle and Gardens, visit their website.
This is only a teaser of our favourites, of course - there’s plenty more to discover in and around Malvern View!
