Beautiful natural landscape
Worcester is lucky to have significant and magnificent green spaces: the impressive Malvern Hills, tower above the city and Britainís longest river, the Severn, runs right past the University.
You're also within easy striking distance of some of the world's most beautiful wild landscapes, from the Wye Valley in the west and the Cotswolds in the south.
Plus, the weather is fair and temperate; the nearby Vale of Evesham is famous for its pleasant fruit-growing climate.
Worcestershire offers many green spaces for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. Other outdoor activities are also popular within the county including watersports, hang-gliding and kiting.
Worcestershire's Countryside Service†provides a list of open spaces including Country Parks, Nature Reserves and Picnic Places for enjoyment of the great outdoors.
