This city is part of the stunning county of Herefordshire, with lots of natural beauty on offer, including the notorious Hereford Cathedral, Wye Valley, and Berrington Hall to name but a few of the possible attractions and days out in and around Hereford. Additionally, various informational days out may include the several museums that on offer, with the Waterworks Museum, Black and White House Museum and the Hereford Cider Museum all contributing very unique experiences and days out. For more day-to-day activities, the Old Market and Buttermarket, compliment the already countless places to shop in the city, which include the Maylord Shopping Centre, and various large superstores such as Primark and Marks & Spencer. Overall, living and working in Hereford has every aspect of life covered, despite appearing to be a more secluded and rural county.
It probably isn’t surprising therefore that various A-roads come in and out of the city, including the A438, A49 and A465 – all offering slightly different ways of navigating around the thriving city in the heart of the county. If this wasn’t enough on its own, Hereford Train Station of course offers quicker transport to multiple locations across England.
