The stunning cathedral city of Hereford is situated on the River Wye, 16 miles east of the Welsh border, and 23 miles northwest of Gloucester, and benefits from quaint side streets filled with intriguing independent shops, as well as hosting a range of markets throughout the year.
Anglo-Saxon roots of the city's name derive from the words 'here' (meaning an army or formation of soliders) and 'ford' (a place where the river can be crossed), suggesting Hereford was a point where ancient bodies of armed men would cross the Wye.
To this day, Hereford is a popular centre of trade for a range of agricultural and man-made goods, such as cider, beer, leather, poultry, nickel alloys, and chemicals, as well as - of course - cattle, with the world renown Hereford cattle breed originating from this area.
Hereford Cathedral is a strikingly beautiful structure, located right in the town centre. This remarkable architectural construction is home to the Mappa Mundi, a mediaeval map of the world dating back to the 13th century.
