The excellent central position of Worcestershire’s Vale & Spa makes it the ideal destination for a relaxing break, easily accessible from anywhere in the country or indeed the world. 

The M5, M4, M42 and M50 motorways are right on the doorstep and there are mainline rail links from Paddington and Birmingham. Overseas connections are catered for with ferry links all around the coast and at airports situated at Birmingham, East Midlands, Coventry, Bristol, Cardiff and Manchester as well as the London terminals of Heathrow and Gatwick. If you are coming from overseas by car then Eurotunnel connects to our motorway network as soon as you reach our shores.
