Head west to Worcestershire for ornate cathedrals, glorious hills and towns sitting on spring water wells. Worcester's cathedral has a big presence. It's adorned in every architectural style from Norman to gothic. Keen ramblers head for beacons dotted with unusual towers and follies in the Malvern Hills. There are grassland and wooded nature reserves all over this West Midlands county. Look out for scurrying voles and minks. Drink Malvern fresh water in market towns and pump rooms that have sprung up around random wells or stock up with bottles of the county's famous tangy condiment, Worcestershire sauce.
