The B4204 is a long rural B-road, mostly in Worcestershire.

It starts on the A443 in the Henwick suburb of Worcester, to the north of the city centre. It heads west and soon enters open country.

The first few miles of the B4204 are largely flat. It goes through Lower Broadheath (of Edward Elgar fame) before eventually climbing into Martley. It reaches the B4197 at a T-junction in the village centre. There is a short multiplex north, before the two roads separate once more - this time it is the turn of the B4197 to have to turn off.

After climbing out of Martley the B4204 descends steeply to the River Teme, which it crosses at the Ham Bridge. The climb out of the valley is steeper (although the road detours to avoid the steepest section of Clifton Hill, Old Road) before the village of Clifton-upon-Teme is reached (so-named despite the fact that the village is well over a mile from the river).

After Clifton the road crosses into Herefordshire, apparently purely to cross the B4203 (which has priority at the crossroads) as it moves back into Worcestershire shortly afterwards. After reaching a summit at Broad Heath the road descends steeply into Upper Rochford. Now heading west, it runs parallel to the River Teme into Tenbury Wells, where it ends on the A4112 in the centre of town, only a short distance from the Shropshire border.
