Get-togethers Under the Blossom

Picnics are back! Outdoor get-togethers are go! And soon we’ll be able to go further afield for a walk. Plan your long awaited meet-ups with family and friends somewhere super special: in Herefordshire, the capital of blossom.  

It’s a fleeting moment  - only six weeks - but it is an unmissable springtime spectacle! Thousands of fruit trees bloom with frothy clouds of pink and white petals, starting at the end of March.

Our In The Pink guide features the best ways to enjoy the blossom:

  • Come blossom chasing... see our weekly blossom updates 
  • Enjoy orchard tours & tastings at craft cider producers
  • Walk and cycle along blossom-lined trails 
  • Pick up a picnic to eat al fresco  
  • Tour our blossom hotspots by car

Our county is one big orchard! We have over 15,000 acres of orchards, producing over half of the UK's cider. Every spring, thousands of fruit trees explode with delicate pink and white petals. It’s naturally uplifting and the perfect antidote to lockdown fatigue. Get together in Herefordshire to get your dose of Mother Nature's positivity.
