Visit Herefordshire & The Wye Valley

Winter Welcomes in Herefordshire

This winter, we are welcoming visitors to escape post-lockdown and savour our fresh air. Roam in our wild landscapes, ramble through our age-old woodlands and trek along our riverside trails. This is walking country so there's endless routes from picturesque strolls to long-distance challenges. Or hop on your bike and take a tour of our Cider Circuits, featuring stop-offs at a series of excellent cider producers.

And afterwards? Tuck into a roast and a pint at one of our welcoming country pubs. Life here is field to fork so enjoy local seasonal vegetables, premium Hereford beef and real ale from a nearby brewery. And there's always plenty on offer for vegetarians and vegans too.

If you would prefer to potter, then our beautiful market towns are the perfect place for a mooch. Fall for the charms of Ledbury, Hereford, Leominster and Ross-on-Wye with their distinctive architecture and eclectic array of independent shops.

Visit our Winter Welcomes website for some seasonal ideas. 



As lockdown begins to ease we are pleased to welcome you back to Herefordshire.

While you are visiting we would ask that you please still follow the social distancing guidelines at all times to help stop the spread of the virus. This is essential as our rural communities lack the infrastructure and NHS facilities to be able to cope with an influx of new cases.






Hereford area

The City of Hereford straddles the banks of the River Wye and is the natural centre of Herefordshire life. Quite simply, it’s a wonderful place to take a break.
Mortimer Country

Mortimer Coutry

You couldn’t make Mortimer Country up. It’s a wonderful unspoilt area of north Herefordshire, nestling into the Shropshire Hills AONB and the Radnor Hills of Powys.


Set in the heart of the Herefordshire Marches, Leominster sits halfway between Ludlow in Shropshire and Hereford at the heart of Herefordshire.


Kington in the North West of Herefordshire, is one of the five market towns of Herefordshire long with Leominster, Bromyard, Ledbury and Ross-on-Wye. Kington, bordering with Powys


There’s a good reason why Bromyard has earned the nickname ‘The Town of Festivals’. Bromyard, nestling between the two cathedral cities of Hereford and Worcester in the east of the Herefordshire.


Nestled at the foot of the Malvern Hills to the east of Hereford, Ledbury is a haven for poetry and culture. The area has seduced and provoked more than its fair share of notable Poets. It’s not hard to see why.
Ross on Wye


There’s no mistaking Ross-on-Wye in south Herefordshire as a market town. St Mary’s Church spire has shaped the skyline of Ross-on-Wye for over 700 years.
Wye Valley

Wye Valley

The River Wye flows along the Anglo-Welsh border and from Mordiford, just south of Hereford, through the south of Herefordshire, the Wye Valley is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Symonds Yat

Symonds Yat

There are so many reasons to visit Symonds Yat in south Herefordshire. Bordering the Royal Forest of Dean to the south and lush agricultural pastures to the north.


Only the Dulas Brook separates Hay-on-Wye in Powys, Wales and its English ‘suburb’ Cusop, which is in Herefordshire.
Golden Valley

Golden Valley

There’s almost something enchanted about Herefordshire’s Golden Valley as it winds its way sheltered between the Black Mountains and the banks of the River Dore.
