Circular Walking Routes

Before the day was born, or otherwise
Through secret windings of the afternoons,
I threw my hunters off and plunged myself
Among the deep hills…

Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806–61), resident of Hope End, Ledbury

Long Distance Walks

Herefordshire is the perfect destination for hikers looking to explore in depth on foot. Intersecting waymarked routes trace ancient paths between medieval Marcher castles, vibrant market towns and ancient hill forts, all studded with characterful inns, B&Bs and restaurants. So it’s easy to piece together a rewarding two- or three-day walking break – or to taste all of the county’s delights on a full circuit around the 154-mile Herefordshire Trail.
