Where On Earth Is Hereford


Following on from our themed "Where On Earth" - based on various stag do destinations, we are now focusing on Hereford.

So why Hereford?

That's a great question which I am just about to answer, so be patient.

Well lets start off with a small location lesson, Hereford is about 60 minutes north of Bristol and 60 minutes south of Birmingham, it's like the filling to a Birmingham and Bristol sandwich, if you will.

It's also only 45 - 60 minutes drive from the Brecon Beacons, which is a perfect place for one of our top adrenalin stag activities - Canyoning.

Hereford sits on the River Wye, a beautiful river which meanders from the Welsh mountains through Herefordshire all the way to the Bristol channel, a fantastic river for a camping and canoeing weekend.

Enough about the Geography, why should I hold my stag do in Hereford or Herefordshire?

Alright bolshy keep your fish-nets on...

As well as the mentioned above stag activities there are also some awesome activity sites where you can race outdoor karts, thrash quad bikes through woods and shoot clays out of the sky over a woodland lake.

There are many Paintball sites you can go old school and  raft building, book a treasure hunt or simply go climbing at Symonds Yat.

So if you're looking for tons of activities at prices which won't break the bank, Hereford has it all.

A full list of stag activities in Hereford.

How about the nightlife?

Hereford is a small city compared to say Bristol or Manchester which I think gives it an edge, it has great nightlife all condensed (no need for cabs) in and around the city centre, most can be found on Commercial Road and Commercial Street.

Along Commercial Road you get your regular bars and pubs such as Yates and J D Wetherspoons but also sits a gem of place called locally as The Gin Palace (Hogarth's). It not only sells loads of different ales, ciders and beers but also trays of different Gins by the bucket load.


Five minutes walk from Commercial Road you have a hugely popular pub called "The Barrels" which sells local Ciders, ales and beers and is the birth place to the Wye Valley Brewery. There is also the Litchfield Vaults where you can get incredible Greek food and not forgetting the old Market which is full of restaurants and high-street shops for guilt presents.

Don't forget that Herefordshire is one of the biggest producers of Cider, so if your stag loves the apples, bring him to Cider paradise, there are a barrel load of cider tours in Herefordshire with Weston's being one of the best in the UK.

You're in Hereford, home to the Hereford Bull, so what better way to celebrate this than to eat it! 

Hereford is home to one of the best burgers you will ever eat at the Beefy Boys and they only use Herefordshire cattle, it's an extremely popular restaurant, so book early.

There are also quite a few late night bars and clubs to keep you drinking into the wee hours such as The Kerry, Play (Hereford's biggest nightclub), Mama Jammers and so on.

So if you're looking for a stag do with lots of adventurous activities, great nightlife at a good price, Hereford is certainly a fantastic choice.


What you currently wont be able to book in Hereford on a stag do (well I have to be impartial):
A lap dancing club
No regular comedy club nights
