This cathedral city and the county town of Herefordshire, Hereford sits prettily on the River Wye, not far from the east of the border with Wales. Adjacent to Worcester and Gloucester, it’s well known for its beauty as well as its history, and makes for an enchanting location for a spa day or break.
Spa breaks in Hereford give you the opportunity to explore its heritage and sample the local fare - it’s particularly well known for its fruit and cider. Visitors to Hereford are always wowed by the 12th century Hereford Cathedral. Alongside it, a new building houses the impressive Mappa Mundi - a Mediaeval map of the world that’s definitely worth seeing as well. You can even see the eerie Chained Library, which inspired scenes in Game of Thrones. The Black and White House is one of the city’s most prized landmarks, dating to the 1620s, and you would be remiss not to visit the Cider Museum Trust for a tour and a sample.
For those preferring the great outdoors, close by you have the 10-acre Weir Garden, Brobury House Gardens, and the vast beauty of the Herefordshire countryside beyond.
Spas in Hereford and the surrounding area invite you to relax in these inspiring surroundings. For example, there’s the achingly romantic Lemore Estate inside a 17th century manor house and surrounded by gorgeous gardens.
