“The best view anywhere”

Herefordshire Beacon
Ranked #6 of 20 things to do in Malvern
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 18 June 2014

There is a large and well-used car park at Wynd's Point and from there it is a stiff climb to the top of Herefordshire Beacon (aka British camp) - but it is so worth it! This hill is offset westwards from the rest of the Malverns, so you get stunning views of them plus the most amazing 360 degree panorama stretching as far as Hay Bluff, the Severn, the Cotswolds, Titterstone Clee and May Hill. The landscapes of the Worcestershire Plain to the east and the hill country of Herefordshire to the west are England at its best. The hill itself is crowned by an Iron Age hillfort with a Norman motte within it. So you get history and scenery in one package!

We parked in the 'British Camp' car park on the A449 south of Great Malvern. From here, there is a gradual climb up to the Herefordshire Beacon - the views from the top, on a good day, are superb. From here, we walked onward to Hangman's Hill and Swinyard Hill, returning via Broad Down on a lower track overlooking a small reservoir. A great morning out!

One of our favourite places to walk our springer spaniel. Lovely walks, great views - you can see for miles on a good day.

Great walking up to Roman Camp, but go beyond (southwards) to escape all the crowds. There is a car park at the foot of the Beacon so it is not far to the top and for the most part a hard surfaced track, but it is steep. Enjoy the 360º views at the top on a clear day.
