Malvern Walking Festival 2024

30 May 2024 to 02 June 2024

All available dates: 30 May 2024 to 02 June 2024

The 19th annual Malvern Walking Festival takes place this year between Saturday 25th May and Sunday 2nd June, with bookings for walks now available on the festival website.

All the walks take place in and around the Malvern Hills as well as some a bit further afield across Worcestershire and Herefordshire. Which? magazine recently voted the Malvern Hills as having the best walks in the Midlands, with 4 stars awarded for the walks and scenery.

There are over 70 walks available over the festival’s nine days, offering plenty of choice for everyone. There are multi-day walks, all-day walks, and shorter half-day walks in the morning, afternoon or evening.  A lot of the walks are also themed including wartime Malvern, Malvern’s water, farming, quarrying, geology, local history, gardens, beer and pubs, to name a few.

Each walk is graded from Gentle to Strenuous so no-one need let themselves in for more than they can handle.  There are walks ranging from three miles to 31 miles and for the keen there is the Malvern Hills End to End and back, the Worcester Way over one or three days, and the best of the Three Choirs Way in three days.

Commenting on the programme, Festival Chairman Bob Baldwin said: ‘The 2024 Festival is our biggest ever since we started in 2004 and we are now one of the biggest in southern England.  Last year we sold out and received dozens of letters from walkers saying how much they enjoyed Malvern and the surrounds.  But we also received too many letters from walkers saying how disappointed they were not to be able to book onto their chosen ramble as it was sold out.  I therefore urge everybody to book early to save being disappointed.

We’re also pleased to confirm that we will again be supporting the Worcester Air Ambulance charity, although of course we sincerely hope we will have no need of their services anytime soon “
