Visit Herefordshire & The Wye Valley

Welcome to Herefordshire

Our beautiful county is a place where you can watch things grow, where you can kick back, relax and enjoy a balanced pace of life. It is about the people, the community and the distinctive character.

Let the natural and wholesome beauty of Herefordshire speak for itself.


Following Government guidance, Visit Herefordshire is advising that you restrict your journeys to our county to short day trips, you should also be aware that the many hospitality businesses remain closed at this time and no overnight stays are allowed.

Current guidelines state that day trips to outside open spaces are permitted as long as you travel in a vehicle with members of your household only. Leaving your home- the place you live- to stay at another home for a holiday or other purpose is not allowed, this includes second homes.  Only essential overnight stays can take place before 4th July 2020

While you are visiting we would ask that you 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.


We will be sharing COVID-19 advice and guidance from Visit Britain, Government and Herefordshire Council to help support your Herefordshire business over the coming weeks, please CHECK HERE for all the current information.

NEW - Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on 23rd June 2020 regarding the re-opening plans for a number of tourism businesses in England from 4th July, the visitor economy guidance has been published. Full details HERE





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.
