Visiting the Museum

With effect from 5.00pm on Sunday 18th September, The Elgar Birthplace Museum is closed to the public in order to effect a smooth handover to the National Trust.  It is expected that the National Trust will re-open Elgar’s Birthplace in early spring 2017.
Location: 3 miles west of Worcester off the A44

Do not follow signs that say “Elgar Route”

The Elgar Birthplace Museum offers a fascinating insight into the life and music, family and friends, and musical inspirations of Sir Edward Elgar, whose masterpieces include Salut d’Amour, Pomp & Circumstance, the Enigma Variations, and many more.

We are set in the heart of Elgar’s beloved countryside, just 3 miles from the City of Worcester.

Elgar 1905
So you have been to Broadheath. I fear you did not find the cottage – it is nearer the clump of Scotch firs – I can smell them now – in the hot sun. Oh! how cruel that I was not there – there’s nothing between that infancy & now and I want to see it.Elgar in a letter to Alice Stuart Wortley
