SO what’s so magical about Malvern? We asked our writers who cover the area to come up with the 10 best things about the place.

Here’s what they said. Do you agree?

  1. The hills: A wonderful place to go walking, biking or running, or just escape the hustle and bustle of modern life
  2. The water: Fresh, clear and famous for containing nothing at all
  3. Science: From the days of radar development in World War II to cyber security today
  4. Culture: There is always lots going on, especially at Malvern Theatres which attracts the biggest stars
  5. Good pubs and restaurants: Favourites include the Nag’s Head and Anupam
  6. Community: Everyone knows everyone else, and it’s a safe place for children to grow up
  7. Location: It’s small and peaceful, but also perfectly placed for access to big cities such as Birmingham and Bristol
  8. Icons: The town is so proud of its connections to Sir Edward Elgar and Morgan cars
  9. Views: The best in the country?
  10. Its local newspaper: The Malvern Gazette (we blush), a champion for its community
