Hereford is a small city- between 50,000 and 60,000 people, and Herefordshire is one of Englands least densely populated counties. With a relatively small catchment theatre is limited but there is the Courtyard http://www.courtyard.org.uk/.

Hereford itself is very picturesque. Visit:

Hereford Cathedral- one of England's most beautiful - and home of the chained library exhibition and the Mappa Mundi- the oldest map of the world in the world dating from around 1270. www.herefordcathedral.org/

The Old House - a 17th century black and white timber framed building right in the city centre www.herefordshire.gov.uk/htt/183.aspx

The Cider Museum- to see what the county of the apple does with many of them! www.cidermuseum.co.uk/

The Broomy Hill Steam Engine- the oldest engine of it's type in the world www.waterworksmuseum.org.uk/

Given the rural nature of Herefordshire you also have some fabulous smaller towns set in the most beautiful scenery. Ledbury, Ross on Wye,Kington and the black and white villages (Weobley and Pembridge are my favourites) - there's the Black and White Village Trail as a driving tour to see them all blackandwhitehouses.co.uk/blackandwhitetrail…

Visit Symonds Yat where the river Wye is at it's most scenic.

Just outside Herefordshire Ludlow, Malvern, Hay on Wye, Skenfrith, Abergavenny and Monmouth are all worth a visit.

If your feeling energetic walk from Hereford to climb Dinedor Hill from where you can see 4 counties, or climb the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Beacons of the Malvern Hills.

Sample Hereforshire's finest traditional cider on the Herefordshire Cider route www.ciderroute.co.uk/.

And enjoy Herefordshire's numerous country pubs- this is the true Garden of England- producing more apples, blackcurrants and strawberries than anywhere else- and with fabulous local potatoes- and the quality of food in the country pubs tends to reflect this.

Have a great stay in England's best kept secret!

Hereford, United...
