Welcome to Malvern - An Historic Spa Town

Malvern is an historic spring town, located in the heart of the Midlands and surrounded by the famous Malvern Hills - a protected area of 'Outstanding natural beauty'.

The town has been known for its natural water springs since the time of Shakespeare and Queen Elizabeth I, and is famous for being the only water drunk by Queen Elizabeth II, who transports it around the world on her travels.

As a result of the town's long and impressive history, modern visitors to the town can experience a town of beautiful Georgian architecture with an array of shops, cafés, restaurants, cinemas and theatres as well as a traditionally British atmosphere.
