Great place for fresh air and a vigorous walk without too much exertion

Convenient car park, good walk as far or as short as you want, a slightly still walk but not too difficult for most people

Plenty of parking available on a pay and display basis. There's a lovely little cafe and a hotel across the road from the car park. Weather was cloudy so we didn't get treated to the available views, at least it was not raining. Sturdy footwear required, suitable for the majority of ages, steep in places so probably not suitable for... More

A steep walk to the top from the car park but the views make it well worth it! You can walk down via a different route too making approx 2 mile walk in total. Great for dogs and kids, we used it to walk off some of our christmas food!

Herefordshire Beacon is we'll worth a visit, especially on a fine clear day when you can see more miles and miles across Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire plus a few other counties if the weather is really clear. Plenty of parking, paths kept in good condition by Malvern Hills Conservators, loos and a nearby cafe all add to the visitors experience.... More

With views both ways over to Worcestershire and Herefordshire you cant get a better vantage point than this. The footpaths are clear and easy, there are a few steps and it can get mildly strenuous but overall and magnificent way to spend a Sunday morning.

We do go here regularly for walks with our dogs, children and friends. One of the most amazing views I have ever seen.

We were lucky and the weather was hot and sunny- a steep climb from the car park up to "Roman CAmp" A great place to visualise what it must have been like over the centuries back to Iron Age. Views tremendous and having enjoyed this we walked down to Gullet Quarry and Hollybush Roughs and as far as Eastnor Castle.... More

We're here on a very wet Saturday (yesterday). Even though the weather was awful, wind and rain, it's still a wonderful place to be.
