Businesses and services

Here is a snapshot of businesses and services, such as plumbers, which visitors might find useful. We haven't included everyone, and shops are opening and closing all the time, but it should give you a good idea of what's available locally.

Recently bank branches have been closing - it's a nationwide trend. Barclays, HSBC, and Lloyds still have a presence in Great Malvern, but those able will need to trudge up to the top of Church Street. Lloyds also has a sub branch in Malvern Link. There is now no bank in Barnards Green, but there is a cash machine, and some banking transactions can be made at the Post Office.
