Free Map and Guide

In 2018 we were pleased to announce the launch of a new, free, walking and cycling map and guide for the Malvern Hills and Commons.

The footpaths and bridleways that cross this iconic landscape are clearly shown to help walkers and cyclists plan their route and find their way.

Advice about enjoying this shared landscape in a responsible way is also provided on side one.  Please help us to care for the precious heritage and sensitive wildlife of the Hills and Commons, and fellow visitors too.

The map and guide is available from our offices, local Tourist Information Centres, cafes, bike shops, and other visitor attractions.

Copies of the map and guide can also be downloaded below - please note that these files are large due to the detailed mapping within the guide.

Visitor Survey 2019

Visitor surveys are an important way for us to understand the way in which people visit and use the Hill, their views and opinions, as well as for helping to ensure that resources are directed in the best possible way. 

In partnership with the Malvern Hills AONB, a visitor survey was carried out on the Malvern Hills and Commons during the summer and autumn of last year.  These figures, together with other data from the survey will be used to help guide our future plans for access works, visitor information and interpretation as well as car parsing facilities.  A full copy of the report can be found below.
