Walking Festivals in Herefordshire
What a great county Herefordshire is to ‘get out there’ by foot, on a bike or in the car. There’s a lot to be said for it – fresh air, exercise, balm for the soul – and Herefordshire is just designed for it! From rural leg-stretchers to strolls, town walks to circular walks, cider cycling routes to long distance self-drive heritage trails – it’s hard to work out what to do next!
