With its picturesque gardens, the Abbey Hotel is the ideal setting to explore the surrounding counties of Worcestershire, Gloucestershire and Herefordshire. There are many historical sites to visit including the close-by Malvern Museum (previously Malvern Priory and Gatehouse) which is steeped in history.
Dating back to 1480, many historical points of interest remain, including the Porters Squint, used by the porter who monitored all the daily movements of people and goods to the Priory estate. It can still be seen in the archway today. After Henry VIII’s dissolution of the monasteries, only Malvern’s Priory Church and Gatehouse survived. It was gifted to the Malvern Museum Society and is now a Grade II Listed Scheduled Ancient Monument.
Finish your day of culture back at the Abbey Hotel’s Priory View Restaurant for a special treat. Enjoy a pot of afternoon tea with a range of sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and jam along with a slice of chef’s delicious cake.
Refreshed, you should be ready for an evening of sixties nostalgia! Historic Huntingdon Hall is the venue for the Counterfeit Sixties (www.visitworcestershire.org/Worcester-Counterfeit-Sixties-Show). Re-live the sounds of the swinging sixties, with their tribute to over 25 bands including: The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Dave Clark Five, The Kinks and The Monkeys. Members of the Counterfeit Sixties have individually worked with renowned artists such as The Searchers, The Ivy League, The Fortunes and The Tremeloes, making them Britain’s number one tribute show. It’s not just about the music though, the show takes you back in time with flashbacks of the era including television programmes, adverts, clothes and clips from the original bands, a truly entertaining evening.
After such an exciting evening, you can look forward to a comfortable and peaceful night’s sleep in one of our 103 individually decorated bedrooms, a room for everyone!
