Public Transport in the Malvern Hills AONB

Train pulling out of Colwall Station A growth in car traffic is one of the main threats to the tranquillity of protected areas and the Malvern Hills AONB is no exception. High levels of car use can also be associated with public safety concerns, damage to wildlife and inconvenience for local people, as well as contributing to greenhouse gas omissions. The Malvern Hills AONB is well served by public transport and the AONB Partnership is keen to encourage its use and to reduce the impacts of the private car in this nationally important landscape.
Cotswolds and Malvern train line guide Trains

Thanks to the Victorians the AONB is fortunate to have four train stations inside or very close to its boundary – Malvern Link, Great Malvern, Colwall and Ledbury. These train stations lie on the Cotswolds & Malverns Line which operates between Oxford and Hereford. Direct trains to the area are available from Birmingham and London and provide an easy and more sustainable way to reach the AONB from afar. Information on service times is available from National Rail.
