Whilst Hereford is encircled by the Wye, the wider county of Herefordshire is hugged by the surrounding counties of Shropshire, Worcestershire, Gloucestershire, Powys and Monmouthshire, meaning our county really is at the heart of rural England.
Herefordshire’s unspoilt rurality belies its vitality and encourages wider exploration. Whether you choose to travel the river to explore the county, hop on a bus or step along a well-marked trail, we highly recommend you explore the things to see and do beyond Hereford city centre.
