WATERFALLS are often described as beautiful, tranquil and idyllic and often a hot spot to visit in the summer.

But they can also be enjoyed in the summer when fewer people are around giving walkers a peaceful way to spend a few hours.

We have put together a list of waterfalls that are about one hour and a half drive away from Worcester.

So if you're looking for a day trip during the summer holidays or just on the lookout for a new adventure, this might be the story for you.
