With views both ways over to Worcestershire and Herefordshire you cant get a better vantage point than this. The footpaths are clear and easy, there are a few steps and it can get mildly strenuous but overall and magnificent way to spend a Sunday morning.

We do go here regularly for walks with our dogs, children and friends. One of the most amazing views I have ever seen.

We were lucky and the weather was hot and sunny- a steep climb from the car park up to "Roman CAmp" A great place to visualise what it must have been like over the centuries back to Iron Age. Views tremendous and having enjoyed this we walked down to Gullet Quarry and Hollybush Roughs and as far as Eastnor Castle.... More

We're here on a very wet Saturday (yesterday). Even though the weather was awful, wind and rain, it's still a wonderful place to be.

Whats good: Great view from atop, easy access from carpark, a small cute place near the carpark has great food & friendly people. You must not miss their cup cakes. Carpark was just about 4£ for the whole day. Plus we also got luck with a beautiful rainbow Whats not so good: We reached quite early to catch the sunrise... More

The Herefordshire Beacon with the British Camp Iron Age fort on the top, is probably the most expansive and picturesque of the Malvern Hills - it's a close run thing, as the whole range is lovely. There are quite a range of walks that can be done here, starting out from the British Camp car park on the A449 (£4... More

As a local I am so lucky to have this on my doorstep, I couldn't count the number of times I've been up there - early mornings, sunsets and even to see the New Year in. A very special place.

This is worth a visit. A nice walk with great views and great fun for kids too as the hill is a grass terraced Iron Age hill fort. There is a car park at the bottom of the path and a kiosk which sells drinks and food, there is also some public toilets and a hotel on the other side... More
