Steeped in tradition, Herefordshire is one of Britain’s most rural, most interesting, yet most undiscovered counties; that’s a large part of its charm.

When you starting finding out about Herefordshire you’ll discover it does things differently, from festivals to gardens, incredible food and drink (have we mentioned the cider and Hereford beef yet?) to artists and creative makers.

Famous as the home of the world renowned Hereford cattle and beef, for producing well over half of the UK’s cider, for the residence of the Hereford Magna Carta and Mappa Mundi at Hereford Cathedral, there is not only culture and heritage here, but the stunning River Wye and Wye Valley with its walking, canoeing, fishing and cycle routes. The Malvern Hills, Brecon Beacons and the Black Mountains lend their incredible views for walking, as does Herefordshire’s spectacular countryside.

Herefordshire’s picturesque and historic towns such as Ledbury, Kington and Ross-on-Wye bustle with markets, independent shops, not to mention the year round festivals, shows and events.

Delve deep, stay long and enjoy the relaxing pace, before everyone else discovers what’s so special about Herefordshire.
