Best locations to visit in Hereford this summer

Church Street in, Hereford

Following on from last week's blog article about the top places to visit in Abergavenny, we're back with the top places to flaunt your fashion accessories in Hereford. Whether you've purchased a Tula handbag, or a Fiorelli handbag, make sure you get out there and explore some of Hereford's top summer locations. After all what's fashion if you can't share it with the world?

Hereford Cathedral

Set in the heart of the city, Hereford Cathedral contains some of the finest architecture from Norman times to the present day. The cathedral holds many events throughout the summer such a concerts, recitals, exhibitions and a working stonemasons yard where skilled craftsmen display the methods used to restore the cathedral. Along with the events you can turn up and take a leisurely stroll around the cathedral, with numerous walk round guides available.

Burton Court

Situated a few short miles north of Hereford, Burton Court is a typical squire’s house which was built around the surviving 14th Century Great Hall. It is a family run business which provides a perfect location for a wedding, private or public function, film work or just a place to relax and take in the beauty of the gardens. In recent times Burton Court was mentioned in Simon Jenkins’s award-winning book ‘England’s Thousand Best Houses.’

Goodrich Castle

The beautiful red sandstone of Goodrich Castle provides a perfect place to relax and unwind while overlooking some magnificent scenery such as the River Wye and Symonds Yat. Built in the late 11th early 12th century the castle provides families with brilliant days out. These range from battle re-enactments to treasure hunts, and with a free audio tour that recounts the ‘siege of Goodrich Castle’ there is something for everyone here.

The Cider museum

Summer wouldn’t be complete without a refreshing pint of cider! So why not take some time to explore the history of cider making and visit the Cider museum Hereford. During your visit you’ll be able to explore how the apples are milled and pressed and then fermented to produce cider. Not only that but you can view and explore a number of artefacts associated with the history of cider making including presses, bottles, old photographs and rare English lead crystal flutes. The artefacts are expertly protected and the museum has received accreditation status by the Arts Council, England for its high standards of artefact care.

Croft Castle and Parkland

Situated in the peaceful Herefordshire countryside, Croft Castle was home to the Croft family for nearly 1,000 years. Along with the castle, the parkland incorporates 607-hectares of gorgeous woodland filled with 300 veteran trees, and is a perfect day out for all the family. So grab your backpacks, pack a picnic and head just a few short miles north of Hereford.

Shipley Gardens

Just a few miles south east of Hereford lies the beautiful Shipley Gardens. Filled with vast amounts of plant life and wildlife such as birds, butterflies and small mammals the gardens are varied enough for everyone’s taste and a perfect place to take in the beautiful summer surroundings that Hereford has to offer.

Eastnor Castle

Set in the Malvern Hills and surrounded by a deer park, arboretum and lake, Eastnor Castle is a beautiful summer attraction. Take a stroll through the castle’s interiors which contains medieval armour, fine art and a Gothic Drawing Room or take a pleasant stroll through the Eastnor Tree Trail or the woodland walk. Not only does Eastnor Castle provide a great day out but it can also host weddings and private gatherings as well as providing a range of stylish accommodation for those guests staying overnight.
