Malvern Town Walking Tours

Every week from Easter to Autumn, we lead guided walks around Great Malvern. In 2020 the walks start from the Tourist Information Centre (TIC) at 10.30am on Monday (including Bank Holidays) and Saturday mornings. Other dates may be available by prior appointment. The walk lasts about 90 minutes. Sadly, due to the hilly nature of Great Malvern, these walks are unsuitable for the less mobile.

We are running a temporary programme of town walks to establish the level of interest in this preliminary stage of tourism re-opening.  This means that until further notice we will only be conducting town walks on Saturdays, starting from 11th July 2020.

Under social distancing we are asking visitors to please book a place in advance where possible to guarantee a place where one is available. Numbers initially are limited to six per group.

All visitors on walks are required to wear masks/face coverings, which town guides will also be wearing.

All walks are subject to coronavirus restrictions.  Please check first with the Malvern Tourist Information Centre to avoid disappointment.

Cost: Adults £5; children under 14, free.

Tickets are bookable from:

  • TIC
  • Civic Society website
  • TicketSource website

Please note: Town Walks are offered on the basis that they may be cancelled at times on account of changes in prevailing circumstances. Checking with the TIC in advance is advisable. There is no town walk available on the opening Saturday of Civic Week each year.
