The Malvern Spa is situated in the picturesque town of Malvern in Worcestershire – one of the most beautiful towns in the UK, set at the foot of the rolling Malvern Hills. Where Malvern is concerned, I might be just a little bit biased, but I think you’ll agree, it is rather beautiful.  Arrival at The Malvern Spa The Malvern Spa boasts a large car park with ample space. Whilst this was the first time I’ve been for a spa day, I have visited on a few occasions as their café with free WiFi is a great place for business meetings.…
