General information

This is part of the women only weekend.

It is partly a social get together, for us to all meet up and say hello, and part exploring the centre of Great Malvern and it's impressive buildings.

Great Malvern originated as a spa village with therapeutic qualities attributed to its springs.

It was the Georgian fancy of taking the waters and later the Victorian popularity of the water cure that transformed Malvern into a Spa town.

The walk will be around 90 minutes or so and end with a cuppa and cake.

The Heritage trail focuses on Malvern's Victorian Golden Age whilst glancing back at the medieval past.

Starting at the railway station we will make our way to the centre of Malvern taking in the impressive Great Malvern Priory, which was founded in 1085 when Benedictine monks settled here and built a Priory which was a daughter house to Westminster Abbey.

We will move on to the Priory gateway, Malvern library, Malvern theatres, Priory mansion and two lovely green areas Priory park and Rosebank gardens.

Refreshments at the end of the walk.
