Hereford is a cathedral city, with a rich and vibrant history. With the picturesque River Wye flowing through its heart, there’s plenty to do and see here, whether you’re looking for culture, shopping, or something more adventurous. 

Home to the 13th-century Mappa Mundi, Hereford Cathedral is well worth a visit. This glorious medieval treasure records how scholars saw and understood the world, both geographically and spiritually. Amazingly well preserved, there’s a sense of awe that’s unavoidable when viewing this marvel. 

If you prefer your fun a little messier, Battlelands Paintball helps you to recreate the ancient battles - through the medium of paintball, while the go-karting at the Raceway is a thrill-a-minute adventure. With plenty of ‘sampling’ available, the Cider Museum will help to calm that adrenaline down. Learn all about this glorious drink, and try your hand at making your own.

Hereford contains all the big high street stores but hidden among the lights, are one-off boutiques. Showcasing local talents, with paintings, hand-tooled leather, and studio pottery, we dare you not to find something you must have! 

Culture buffs will love the range of performances at the Courtyard Theatre. From comedy to musicals, there’s something to suit every taste, and with a number of fine dining restaurants, a meal and a show is the perfect end to the day. 

Hereford will send you home with some fabulous memories as you catch the train for your journey home. Next time, book via our downloadable app, and if you go with friends, our group discounts are a great idea.
