The Elgar route: in his footsteps
Sir Edward Elgar
Sir Edward Elgar was organist at St George's church, Worcester.

The Elgar route is a circular route around Herefordshire and Worcestershire taking in many of the landmarks connected with the composer.

The 40-mile circular driving route passes through Worcester City and Great Malvern.

The route has been designed so that it can be joined at any convenient point, with over 40 places of interest associated with Elgar's life and music along the way.

The route is well signposted.

It's been produced and signposted by Worcester City Council and Malvern Hills District Council.

A leaflet giving details of the route is available at most Tourist Information Centres.
