The Elgar Trail
Start at the Elgar Birthplace Museum in Lower Broadheath. Elgar lived here until he was two years old and after his death in 1934, his daughter fulfilled her father's wish to turn the family cottage into his lasting legacy.
The route moves on to Birchwood Lodge, where Elgar composed Sea Pictures and Caratacus, no doubt inspired by the rolling countryside of the Malverns.
Explore Craeg Lea where Elgar lived for five years and Forli, his marital home, which he returned to with his wife in 1889 after his career in London floundered.
Finally pass by St Wulstan's Church where Elgar was laid to rest beside his wife, following his death on 23 February 1934.
This driving route of around 35 miles will take you on a journey through time and an insight into Edward Elgar's fascinating life.
