Why visit Worcestershire?
Worcestershire – oh the sauce? Oh, we are so much more than that. Located in the heart of England, at the centre of the motorway and rail network – Worcestershire offers rolling hills, glorious green space, award-winning family attractions, and over a thousand years of history.
Home to the Malvern Hills, the West Midlands Safari Park and the renowned Severn Valley Railway. Famous for our Sauce and industrial past, being the home of democracy with King John signing the first Magna Carter here and being the location of the first and last battle of the English Civil War.
Steeped in so much history, surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside with a unique independent dining scene sourcing the best of local produce. Book today to make Worcestershire part of your story.
Worcestershire is well-appointed for coach parties, with ample parking across the county.
Parking is managed by the local district Councils, but the key sites are outlined below:
Coach parking is available at the long-stay car park on Childswickham Road, a short walk from the village centre.
Coach parties are best placed to drop off their passengers either in Victoria Square in the town centre or outside the Lido car park.
Following this, there are two laybys that can be used to wait in on the Saltway opposite the Morrison’s Supermarket carpark, either side of the roundabout.
Coach parking is available at Viaduct Meadow (WR11 4SU). Although there are no marked bays, there is plenty of space on the grass surface. For information on charges and payment options, please visit Wychavon District Council’s parking website page.
There is also a coach drop-off point in the centre of town at Merstow Green near the Almonry Tourist Information Centre which is a bus stop outside the Babycino café. Coaches are then advised to park down at Viaduct Meadow for the duration of their stay.
