Malvern’s former Tourist Information Office has a new destination

June 2021

Many properties on Worcestershire’s high streets remain empty following the pandemic but plans are afoot for the former Tourist Information Office in Malvern. 

The historic property, which is set in the middle of Great Malvern’s main retail area, is one of the most prominent buildings on Church Street. Acting on behalf of Malvern Hills District Council and Wychavon District Council, GJS Dillon’s Associate Director Andrew Lewis, sold it to a private investor. 

The 2,597 sq ft mixed-use property is surrounded by popular national occupiers and is within easy reach of Worcester city centre and the M5. It contains a ground floor self-contained retail unit and a recently refurbished, self-contained three bedroom flat on the first floor. The new owner of the property plans to convert the retail unit into a coffee shop.

‘As priorities shift towards companies finding spaces their staff enjoy working in, we believe that Malvern as a whole will benefit from this trend.’ says Mr Lewis ‘The increase in office occupiers is likely to have a knock-on effect with empty retail units such as this one being re-purposed to cater for that market’
