What a week for Malvern and The Abbey Hotel, who played host to the RHS. Well over 100,000 visitors basked in the sun-drenched Malvern Hills to visit the Spring Garden Show last week. The show gardens, the floral hall and the hundreds of exhibitors with every garden gadget imaginable were the main attractions and the BBC devoted a whole show of Gardeners World to Malvern on Friday 9th May!
The town of Great Malvern – where the Abbey Hotel is arguably its centrepiece – was well represented. Over 28 local retailers decorated their premises with a floral tribute to the show and to showcase the variety of options available to visitors to Malvern. The winner was Elgar on his bicycle, Malvern’s most famous son (although I think he looked a bit more like John Lennon)!
The hills, the flora and fauna are absolutely fantastic at this time of year and you can stay at The Abbey Hotel, right in the heart of the town. Log onto http://www.sarova.com/abbey/ to check out availability and rates!
