A Mini Guide to Hereford
What can you Tell me About Hereford?
The city dates back to Saxon times when it was a crossing point over the River Wye for soldiers, hence its name. It grew around the magnificent cathedral to become an important market town and staging post on the way to Wales. Today it is a bustling community whose fortunes now revolve around tourism and local agriculture.
How do I get to Hereford?
If you’re going to fly in then you’ve got the choice of Cardiff Airport
or Bristol Airport, both of which have international flights to European destinations. If you are visiting from the US
, you’ll need to connect to an international hub or take the train from a London airport changing at Bristol. Cardiff and Bristol Airport
are both within an hour of the city and offer car hire facilities too if you don’t want to wait until you get to Hereford.
What is There to see and do in Hereford?
Begin at the magnificent cathedral built in 1079 on the orders of William the Conqueror to help control the wayward Welsh. The cathedral holds the oldest and largest copy of a Mappa Mundi in the world and it’s proudly on display there. The city has a pretty market place which, twice a week, is home to a traditional market including local produce. Outside the city, an afternoon’s drive will take you to the honey stoned villages of the Cotswolds or to the bleak and foreboding mass of the Brecon Beacons over the border in Wales.
