Parking

The Malvern Hills Trust car parks provide a starting point for many walks, cycles and adventures over the Hills and Commons. Monies received from car parking fees go directly towards nature conservation and management of the Hills to protect this special place for people and for wildlife.

Residents' car parking passes

We are grateful to everyone who supports the conservation of the hills and commons by purchasing passes for our car parks.  Residents within the town of Malvern and the parishes of Colwall, Guarlford, Malvern Wells, Mathon and West Malvern who pay the levy to the Trust on their council tax bill, are entitled to an annual concessionary parking pass at £5.70 each.

From the 5th November to the 2nd December, the public counter at the Trust offices will be closed and parking passes will not be available to purchase in person.  

Options for buying new passes for 2020/21 are as follows:
