Malvern Instruments has several offices around the world. The global head quarters are located in Malvern, Worcestershire, United Kingdom (or the UK map version). Various training courses are held here. What is the best way to travel to Malvern to attend one of these?

The closest airport is Birmingham International [BHX] about 45 miles away, reachable by train [ca 2 hours, ca 15GBP] or via pre-arranged taxi [ca 50 GBP].
The largest UK airport is London Heathrow [LHR] about 125 miles away, reachable by train [ca 3.5hours], or via pre-arranged taxi [ca 150GBP].
Other airports with limited service or limited/inconvenient transportation options are, roughly in order of distance from Malvern: Coventry [CVT], Bristol [BRS], East Midlands [EMA], Luton [LTN], Manchester[MAN], Gatwick [LGW], and Stansted [STN].

Train schedules vary, as do prices for train tickets in the UK. Taxis are available at the main Great Malvern Railway station.

Most attendees typically stay at the Abbey Hotel, where Malvern Instruments has negotiated a special rate (wait for details from the UK on that before booking).

Alternative lodging options are: Malvern Spa Hotel, Ash Villa Bed and Breakfast, Link Lodge Bed and Breakfast, as well as other hotels in the area, such as the Cottage in the Wood Hotel.

Malvern is a popular tourist destination and it may at times be difficult to get accommodation, so it would be advisable to make reservation ahead of your arrival.

Safe travels!
