Long Distance Trails

Worcestershire boasts four very distinctive long distance walking trails including part of the Severn Way. If you are challenging yourself to walk the full length of a trail, you will find many good places to stay along the route at www.visitworcestershire.org/accommodation.

We also have a varied range of shorter walks available.


The Severn Way

210 miles / 337 kilometres

Severn Way

There's something rather romantic about following natural features in the landscape, whether it's a mountain range, a coastline or in this case a river.

The full route of The Severn Way is 210 miles long, Worcestershire is proud to manage 39 miles through the County.

The Worcestershire Way

31 miles / 50 kilometres

Worcestershire Way

Hugging the western edge of the County as it borders Herefordshire; the Worcestershire Way really is an opportunity to explore outstanding rural landscapes.  At 31 miles, the route passes through beautiful sleepy villages and verdant steep sided valleys between the Georgian town of Bewdley and the grand spa town of Malvern.
