This tour was a present, much appreciated! Chloe our guide was very good, knowledgable, friendly and extremely helpful. Definitely need to be transported to and from this as the number of different vodkas & gins to taste is large even if you only take small...MoreThanks for your kind review of our distillery tour. We are all very proud of the distillery and enjoy sharing our story with visitors. Good to hear you enjoyed the samples and we hope you enjoy the products you took home. Cheers

The above website is currently under construction so you might try http://www.herefordwebpages.co.uk/mapmundi.shtml & http://www.herefordcathedral.org/about/archive/chained_library.html also.Thanks,David KennedyAlthough the Mappa Mundi and Chained Library are in the same location as Hereford Cathedral, they have their own purpose-built building and carry a separate admission fee.
The library is now in a beautiful building and is clearly being well cared for. The books on show are amazing. The print on display is beyond belief considering how it was done. A few magnifying glasses to use wool have helped me. As for the map fascinating, again how it was made and the story behind it make a good way to spend half an hour or so.

Just off the main road, just too easy to go past and miss the turning into it.
However, it would be a real pity to miss it. The food in the cafe is superb - and there is lots of it on your plate, even when it is just a ham and cheese roll. Everything is fresh and tasty.
The cheese shop itself is excellent, and you are more than encouraged to try anything. The guided tour round the factory is also good.

A Jacobean merchants shop in the heart of Herefords high town. Come and get a flavour of life in the 17th century and browse our selection of unique and unusual gifts in our shop. Entry prices: Adults £2.50 Children £1.50 (under 5's free) Families (2 adults, 3 Children) £7.50 Annual pass: Adult £7.50 Child £4.50 Family £22.50
Really worth popping into this house/museum (its even open on Sundays) and its only £2.50 a ticket! The house is in great condition and contains so much fascinating history about the people who lived there and Hereford it's self. The staff were very knowledgeable and really keen to tell us all about the place.

... but only a half hour's walk around the site, in pleasant surroundings. If I am I right in thinking that this costs £6 43 for non NT members, it is not worth it, in my opinion.

Created as the perfect house in the perfect setting, Berrington has many secrets to uncover. Here in one of Henry Holland’s first houses, you can explore the family rooms and walk in the servants’ footsteps down the back stairs, moving around the house unseen by the family and guests. You will find out what happened to William Kemp, LordCawley’s butler, and discover the anguish of a grieving mother during the First World War. Alternatively why not join a below-stairs tour to see if you would have liked being a servant at Berrington?
A super Manor House with a lot of excellent contents. Views out over land laid out as Lancelot Brown’s last design.
On our visit, the upstairs was closed for refurbishment, with more of the basement having been opened to show how the downstairs staff would have had to deal with things.
Lots of places to walk.
There is also a large walled garden with a Strange and out of place modern salmon pink pavilion stuck in the middle of it.

Visit this museum in the heart of Herefordshire and learn about the history of cidermaking. Discover how apples were harvested, milled, pressed and the juice fermented to produce cider. Walk through the fascinating champagne cider cellars and find out how two 19th century brothers created the Bulmers empire. Visits include a free sample of cider in the gift shop. There is a tea room and free parking. Annual Cidermaking festival in October, see website for details.
This is a great little museum, telling the story of cider making through the ages, and its commercialisation by the Bulmer family. The cellars packed with tens of thousands of bottles are fascinating. Naturally, the shop has a good range of cider and a chance to sample one or two, and there is also a really nice little cafe.

Located next to the River Wye, Herefordshire’s only working museum offers visitors more than you can imagine - it has something for all of the family. Engines, pumps and turbines plus an exciting water park for children and an exhibition focused on Hereford in WW2. Wholly run by Volunteers, the Museum is open every Tuesday (11am-4pm) + on the 2nd & last Sunday of the month between Easter and October (12-4pm). Please see the Museum website for special events calendar including new events for 2018 and school holiday activity for younger children. Free parking, light refreshments, and full disabled access.
We visited on gala day it was brilliant. Loads of engines in steam. A range of vintage vehicles and a brass band. Great day out. There was also a children's interactive water pumping area, this was great for my 5 year old but we enjoyed it too, really good way to learn about how we get drinking water. The volunteers were excellent, they needed a bit of help in the kitchen though! Highly recommend a visit on a steam day. Great stuff.

These Gardens are spectacular. A perfect place to spend an afternoon alone or with friends. The garden is split into different areas and is so interesting. I love the fern garden with the water feature, again on the sunnier side is the rose garden and greenhouse area. Everything apart from the pond areas are immaculate. The ponds could be so much nicer but again, if the owners are not interested in water Gardens then probably better to forget them as there are natural water flowing through the Gardens anyway. Just a very pleasant place to spend some time.
