Celebrate Herefordshire’s favourite thirst-quencher by taking one of our three Cider Circuits. Each route takes in beautiful countryside and calls in at artisan cider makers for tastings, tours and orchard strolls. With recommendations for places to visit, eat and relax en route. Designed for cyclists, the circuits work equally well by car.
