Where to Stay
Places to Go in Herefordshire
For amazing architecture and stunning stained-glass windows, take a trip to this eleventh-century cathedral. You will also find an enormous medieval map of the world known as the Mappa Mundi and the Chained Library, with its books manacled to the shelves like eternal prisoners.
Black and White Trail
The Tudor cottages in Herefordshire are some of the best in the country – and you can see them by following the Black and White Trail. Their wooden framework is visible on the outside of the building, a type of construction known as half-timbering and one that gives them their distinctive black and white colouring.
There’s no better way to relax than with an adult beverage, and you won’t find potato gin, vodka or cider better than that produced at the family-run Chase Distillery – and it’s all made onsite. Make sure you take a tour and try some samples.
Originally built as a means of protection for the most important crossing point on the River Wye, this medieval Norman castle is now an impressive historical site to visit. Much is still completely intact and, with its gorgeous views and imposing atmosphere, this is a breathtaking building.
