Malvern Hills walking route named best in the Midlands and in UK's top 50 by Which?

A WALKING route in the Malvern Hills has been listed in the UK’s top 50 after a survey conducted by Which?

The three-mile stroll is 33rd in the list and the highest one in the Midlands to chart in the research officially revealed this morning.

It was awarded an 80 per cent score overall with a four-star rating for scenery.

It also received three stars in all other categories, including ‘accessibility’, ‘food and drink’, ‘visitor facilities’, ‘places of interest’ and ‘wildlife’.

Top of the list was the magical walk in Yorkshire taking in Malham Cove and Gordale Scar. Visitors were impressed by the cove’s amphitheatre-shaped cliffs which lead up to a limestone pavement, where a scene from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was filmed.

Second was Bottallack Mine Walk and third was the Lizard Peninsula Circuit – both in Cornwall.

Others which performed well were in the Lake District, Snowdonia, The Gower Peninsula and Pembrokeshire.
