Delve into the life and loves of Sir Edward Elgar

Worcester, Worcestershire

Worcestershire really is 'Land of Hope and Glory' with the music and talent of Sir Edward Elgar engrained into the county's cultural heritage.

Take a fascinating tour along the Elgar Route and visit the Elgar Birthplace Museum to learn about the composer's life, visit Spetchley Park Gardens where Elgar stayed in 'Gardener's Cottage' and walk on the Malvern Hills in which Elgar was famously inspired to write Pomp and Circumstance which better known as 'Land of Hope and Glory'.

You can also enjoy the Elgar Walking Route in Worcester city centre to really get to know the composer and how he spent his life in the city and see a stained-glass window attributed to his life in the magnificent Worcester Cathedral.
