Guided Walks

In the beautiful and historic City of Hereford

Welcome to Hereford

Hereford is an historic Cathedral City with a fascinating past and a busy present. Its modern origins lie in the 7th century and its strategic site on the Wye, in the much disputed borderland between England and Wales, made it as important to the Saxons as to the Normans and their successors.

The City played a leading part in the events before and after the Norman Conquest, through the turbulent Middle Ages and during the Civil War. It developed as a quiet market town and Cathedral City. Today it is vigorous and thriving, a home for 60,000 people and a focal point of a rich farming area.

We will commence our Daily walks on Saturday 9th April 2022. The walks will  start from the Cathedral Main entrance (North door).
