Hereford, Shropshire

With a friendly market town atmosphere, Hereford has been the market and commercial centre of our Herefordshire farming communities for hundreds of years. It’s no surprise then that we still know how to make the most of all that’s good from the land.

Hereford is a lovely city with a lively feel. There are lots of things to do, not least indulging in some shopping! Wander around the independent stores in the historical centre and call in to the adjacent brand spanking new prestigious Old Market, built on the site of the old livestock market. The livestock market has a new, modern home just outside Hereford on Roman Road featuring regular auction sales of the region’s livestock.
We can’t wait to share it too – so as well as our characteristic warm welcome you‘ll find the finest food, drink and produce at the top of our menus. From great products that made Herefordshire famous such as Hereford Beef, cider, perry, potatoes, soft fruit and fruit juices – to the feasts that are making our name again, including gourmet crisps, cheese, asparagus and the revival in real ales.
A visit to the 13th Century Mappa Mundi at Hereford Cathedral is a must. It’s the largest medieval map of the world in existence, but is so much more than just a map, think of it as a social snapshot of 13th Century faith and history.

Don’t miss dropping into The Cider Museum to find our best known ‘golden amber’ is produced. Explore the original cider champagne cellars of the former cider making factory and if the timings right you can join in with the International Cider and Perry Competition.
