Fodor's Expert Review The Firs Elgar’s Birthplace

Great Malvern Museum/Gallery

The composer Sir Edward Elgar was born in the village of Lower Broadheath, 8 miles north of Great Malvern, in this tiny brick cottage. Set in a peaceful garden, the museum contains personal memorabilia, including photographs, musical scores, and letters. Be sure to take a seat next to the statue of the musician as he admires the Malvern Hills that so inspired him.
