First on the list must be Hereford Cathedral, which houses the oldest map in the world, the Mappa Mundi, alongside the ancient Chained Library. This year the Cathedral proudly hosted the world famous Three Choirs Festival which returns every three years, sharing the event with Worcester & Gloucester Cathedrals all within an hours drive
Next, wander around the world famous book town of Hay-on Wye, enjoy a coffee and visit the shops or better still, spend a week or two at the fascinating and vibrant Hay Literary Festival which is held every year during the month of May!
