Feel a World Away in Herefordshire

Off the beaten track, under the radar, a hidden gem... call it what you will, the chances are you haven’t yet stumbled upon Herefordshire.

Tucked against the Welsh border, hugged by the Malvern Hills and the Brecon Beacons, Herefordshire is closer than you think. But our wild landscapes, dramatic history, charming market towns and fabulous local food will make you feel a world away.

We have green space by the (country) mile, along with views that would make any heart soar. Roam our rolling hills, apple orchards and atmospheric woodlands. Perhaps you’ll meet the wild ponies or find a remote castle ruin with many a story to tell. Meander by bike through our picture-perfect ‘black-and-white villages’ or tour the county’s cider and perry producers. The River Wye is spectacular at any time of year, and is extra-special when steering a canoe or stand-up paddleboard.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON COVID-19


We can't wait to welcome you to Herefordshire later in 2021 – in the meantime, enjoy planning your trip!
