This is a resource I didn't know we had. Its a small community centre / cafe / educational centre. I learnt a lot of new things about the Malvern hills, just reading the walls whilst having tea and cake :-)

Thank you for query. Unfortunately we do not allow dogs inside the Cafe / GeoCentre, unless they are assistance dogs, but we do have a tie point just outside with water bowl and external seating.
