The Firs

The Firs is the birthplace of Sir Edward Elgar and is most definitely home to ‘Land of Hope and Glory’. Set in sight of his beloved Malvern Hills, this small family home in the village of Lower Broadheath is the perfect environment for nurturing a creative genius. Perhaps by wandering around the garden over the cottage threshold a spark of inspiration may alight in our welcomed guests.

There is a tea-room with an outdoor area within the Visitor Centre (near car park). Elgar memorabilia and music for sale within the tea-room. Picnic spaces around the Visitor Centre.

Assistance dogs welcome throughout the property. Other dogs are welcome on leads within the visitor centre (except the tea-room) and the cottage garden, sorry not in birthplace cottage.
