Welcome to Worcestershire...
This is the place for you if you prefer to take the scenic route.
It is the county that inspired England's greatest composer, Sir Edward Elgar. So what could be more English than this?
The county that is dominated by the rise and fall of the Malvern Hills is also peppered by pretty market towns like Pershore, Droitwich Spa, Tenbury Wells and Evesham.
Cultural overload? Blow off the cobwebs on a forest trail in the Wyre Forest District. Or take to the water in a canoe or narrowboat. Or, if you fish, get down to the banks of the Severn, Britain's longest river.
Use the quick finder to the left or navigation above to find these attractions, accommodation, festival and events plus much more.
