Visit Worcestershire to explore wild countryside, and delve into the western county’s important role in English history. Worcester’s ornate cathedral has a big presence, being adorned in every architectural style from Norman to Gothic. Keen ramblers should head for beacons dotted with unusual towers and follies in the Malvern Hills. While calling in on the grassland and wooded nature reserves that are 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.
