This is a resource I didn't know we had. Its a small community centre / cafe / educational centre. I learnt a lot of new things about the Malvern hills, just reading the walls whilst having tea and cake :-)

This GeoCentre displays interesting info on various aspects of the Malvern Hills, including easy and hard walks around the area. There's also a small cafe with lovely homemade cakes where you can just relax and read the various newspapers, magazines, etc. Not open every day so check before you visit.

Raining when we arrived but after a freshly made to order panini and coffee which went down well the sun came out! Good level of information on the area presented in an accessible and creative way in the centre. We then hired the Tramper and were able to visit the nearby Worcestershire beacon, this is an great opportunity for someone... More

A lovely cafe making very fresh snacks while you wait. The service and food was very good although we'd previously driven past thinking it was closed . It was a pity we couldn't see more of the view while we ate but we'd definitely visit again when next in the area. Lots of information available too, a nice place to... More

This cafes one of the few places close to the hill ridge where you can get refreshments and is roughly halfway between the Beacon and British Camp. It isn't that easy to spot but is just below the Wyche cutting on the Hereford side. Look for the Bennett's Ice cream sign just off the road to Colwall, entrance at the... More
