We all know Worcestershire is a wonderful place to live, but what are the county’s top spots? We might not be able to rival the Pyramids of Giza or the Hanging Gardens of Babylon but we think we’ve got some pretty awesome wonders of our own!
So to find our county’s most loved landmarks, we have launched a Worcestershire-wide campaign to find them. From top outdoor beauty spots to our incredible historical landmarks and architecture, the Seven Wonders of Worcestershire campaign aims to not only support local businesses but to shine a light on Worcestershire, one of the UK’s best-kept secrets.
Home to over 70 retailers, selling over 600 products, all of which have been made or sourced by independent businesses in Worcestershire, our platform brings together the very best that Worcestershire has to offer, all in one place.
The campaign will focus on raising the profile of Worcestershire, showcasing the most iconic landmarks and businesses, such as The Confetti Fields in Pershore, The Regal Cinema in Evesham and West Midlands Safari Park in Bewdley.
Speaking on the county-wide campaign, Gillian Davies, Founder of LWYL, said:
Having first moved to Worcestershire around 20 years ago, I’m still amazed at the beauty our county has to offer. One of my personal favourites is the Malvern Hills so the team here at Love Where You Live decided to create the ultimate poll of our most incredible destinations. As locals, we know that everyone has a favourite so competition for the top spots could be fierce.
Running for the next month, the campaign is launching today with its first category, best historical landmarks and it includes:
- Worcester Cathedral
- Witley Court
- Croome Court
- Worcester Royal Porcelain
- Harvington Hall
- Friar Street
People are invited to have their say on which local landmark is included within the top seven by heading to the Love Where You Live Facebook page here. Every week for the next month, the platform will issue a series of polls to identify the overall Wonders.
The campaign will end on the 27th of August and the Seven Wonders of Worcestershire will be announced throughout the following week.
We hope you enjoy the campaign and don’t forget to use the hashtag #SevenWondersofWorcestershire and tag us in your Worcestershire Wonders on our Facebook (@LWYLWorcs) or Instagram (@lwyl_worcs) for a chance to be featured on our Love Where You Live pages!
