10 Reasons to Walk the Worcestershire Way

With beautiful views, orchards a plenty, country pubs and a real variety of terrain there’s lots of reasons to Walk the Worcestershire Way, so we decided to share some of the best photos we could find that really capture the essence of a day walking the Worcestershire Way, some of the things that can be found along the way and of course the incredible feeling of achievement as it’s accomplished!! Even if you don’t do the full 31 miles, it’ll be a challenge and a very definite achievement!  

Where does the Worcestershire Way start and finish?

The Worcestershire Way begins in the Georgian town of Bewdley running south to Ribbesford; the route then heads to Heightington before passing through woodland on narrow winding lanes down to Abberley Hill. From Abberley Hill the route leads South and up the steep Walsgrove Hill with views over the Teme Valley before continuing south to Ankerdine Hill and the Suckley Hills. From the Suckely Hills the Worcestershire Way heads south-east finishing in Great Malvern. The views from Ankerdine Hill stretch way back to the Malvern Hills and beyond – you can see just where you’ve been and how far you’ve come when you get to here!

Seems the pubs and the local variety of ales and ciders are pretty popular! Worcestershire is known for it’s orchards – pears and apples and you get to meander right through them on the Worcestershire Way
