Discover the prettiest villages in Herefordshire

The Black and White Village Trail is a motor route through some of the prettiest Herefordshire villages and most beautiful landscape in England. The 40 mile circular trail leads west from the ancient town of Leominster, through a rich landscape of orchards, hopyards and distant hills, taking in the most picturesque black and white villages along the way as well as the little market town of Kington.

The villages are more than just pretty places to visit. Each one has its own character and community, with tea-rooms, shops, craft workshops and pubs waiting to welcome the visitor. Take advantage of the quieter pace of life and enjoy a day spent following the byways of quintessential rural England.
