Things to do in Malvern this Winter

15 December, 2021 by Andy Mason

Preparing for a winter staycation or even a short weekend break in the UK can be difficult. Britain’s unpredictable weather means you can’t always rely on scenic walks to keep you occupied. So, when choosing your holiday destination, you will want to make sure there are alternative indoor activities available to you in case the weather turns. But should a beautiful, crisp winter’s day come along, you’ll want to be somewhere you can soak up the great outdoors. Malvern offers the perfect blend of interesting and exciting indoor activities and picturesque walks with spectacular views. In this blog, we’ll be taking you through some of the best things to do in Malvern this winter. 


Malvern Theatre 

The Malvern Theatre is a centre for artistic excellence in the West Midlands and it’s just a 5-minute walk from Mount Pleasant Hotel. Whether you want to see the latest blockbuster film, a play, or an art display, be sure to check what’s on at the Malvern Theatre on your next visit. 


Malvern Priory

In the centre of town is Malvern Priory that puts on a variety of religious events throughout the year. Not only are the events great to be a part of and allow you to meet the friendly Malvern community, but the building is even more beautiful on the outside. It’s a perfect photo opportunity, especially in the snow.


Local Pubs

There are a number of traditional, rustic pubs dotted around Malvern with highly rated food, drinks and atmosphere. Make your way around Malvern via the pubs for frequent cover from the cold and to keep you refreshed.


Museum of Local History 

Museums are great for a respite from the cold when exploring a new place. A visit to the Museum of Local History, which is due to re-open in 2022, will have you learning about the history and geology of Malvern, adding some extra context to the rest of your exploration.


The Malvern Spa

Whether you want a relaxing end to a busy day or to experience the bliss of a spa day make sure to visit The Malvern Spa. They offer a variety of treatments to get you feeling completely relaxed. There are also packages that are the perfect way to treat yourself or a loved one. Return from your winter stay at Malvern feeling like a new and rejuvenated person. 


Ice Quest

Ice Quest Malvern is the perfect day out for families, friends and couples. You can choose from escape rooms, laser quest, or ice skating for a more seasonal option. Currently, Ice Quest has reduced their numbers for ice skating for customer safety, so you may want to book in advance for weekend skating.


Clue HQ Malvern

If you’re interested in escape rooms but the ones at Ice Quest don’t appeal then there’s even more escape room options at Clue HQ Malvern. From Ancient Egypt to prison escapes, choosing a room will almost be the most difficult part. Escape rooms are a great way to bond with friends and family while challenging yourselves on an especially rainy or cold day.



Visit the Malvern Hills

The Malvern Hills are perfect on a crisp and clear day, even more so with the snow on the scenery. With so many different landscapes and cultural points to enjoy it’s a great and economical day out for the whole family. There are many walks that can be taken, all with varying levels of difficulty, so you can experience the stunning Malvern Hills for yourself.

There are so many exciting things to do in Malvern come rain or shine. Picking the right place to stay can also make your trip even more memorable and comfortable.
