Herefordshire, we don’t mind admitting, is a little mysterious. The fact we’re a little bit hidden, a little bit unknown makes Herefordshire all the more intriguing. Here we offer you as much inspiration as you could wish for when planning your visits to our rolling green hills and quirky market towns.
The four seasons, ancient oaks, apple orchards, green lanes, hidden castles and black-and-white villages distil themselves into a potent mix that’s stronger than our strongest local cider!
Enjoy the wonky black-and-white Tudor villages and relatively quiet roads with a cycle ride through North Herefordshire. If you’re bit of a petrol head, head off to Herefordshire Raceway to burn up the tarmac at this outdoor go-kart circuit. Undulating and challenging, the twin engine pro karts are thrilling for ages 8 – 80! Who will be champion in your group?
Our rich soil and rural heritage, sheltered landscapes and mild climate provide nourishment for a wealth of glorious gardens. Whether you fancy ‘Capability’ Brown’s park landscape at Berrington Hall, snowdrops and daffodils at The Weir Garden or the fantasy lands of Ralph Court Gardens, we have some stunning gardens for you to visit.
In addition to the maze, you can walk amongst the exotic free flying creatures at the Butterfly Zoo, ride an ancient hand-pulled rope ferry across the Wye and take a river trip with Kingfisher Cruises. Or cool off by shooting the Grade 2 rapids in a hired kayak!
