The majestic city of Worcester dominates the county of Worcestershire and rightly so for it is a stunning city worthy of the attention. Worcestershire sits in the heart of England and though it is industrial in the north, the southern and central sections of the county also offer some beautiful and charmingly rural places to visit.

Anyone coming to Worcestershire should take the time to visit the Malvern Hills, often described as a miniature mountain range. Used by Mallory to train for his Everest expedition, the eight-mile ridge contains some of the oldest rocks in the UK, a craggy jagged outline looking out on the rest of the county. With over 4500 acres of open countryside to explore and endless trails for hiking and biking, riding and running, they are a true natural wonder, from their steep wooded slopes to their highest point of Worcestershire Beacon.

Other sites worth visiting in the countryside of Worcestershire include Tenbury Wells, known as the town in an orchard because of its location in the fertile fruit and hops growing valley of the River Teme, the gorgeous and fertile Vale of Evesham, and the Wyre Forest, an ancient medieval hunting forest which now offers miles and miles of attractive woodland walks. For a different perspective, take the Severn Valley Railway through the glorious countryside between Bridgenorth and Kiddermister.

Other highlights include Bewdley, an elegant town with beautiful old Georgian architecture and Thomas Telfords wonderful old stone bridge across the Severn, Stourport and its canals, Pershore on the Avon with a Norman Abbey and lantern tower built in the 1300s; and of course the city of Worcester itself, the county town and cathedral city, home to Royal Worcester Porcelain, the Dyson Perrins Museum, Worcester Racecourse , the Elgar Birthplace Museum and the magnificent 11th century Worcester Cathedral. A fantastic city and delightful county.
