The Amazing Hedge Puzzle

The Amazing Hedge Puzzle has 12 routes and 13 dead-ends. The attraction also has other maze-based attractions as well as a butterfly zoo, miniature golf course and a laser tag battleground.

The rumours that a skeleton was found in the maze, complete with backpack is completely un-true as most people complete it within an hour.

Westons Cider Visitor Centre

At Westons Cider Visitor Centre you can hear how cider is produced, from the planting of the orchards to the moment the cider is poured into a glass. Step back in time as you experience the tranquil and fragrant vat shed, housing historic oak vats, some nearly 200 years old and all still used. If you visit in Autumn you may get to see the milling and pressing of the cider fruit. The tours take up to an hour and a half and this includes a tasting of ciders and perries in the shop.

Small breed farm park & Owl centre

Set in a glorious rural environment you have a unique opportunity for a close encounter with many rare, miniature and very special friendly animals. The 'hands on' experience is actively encouraged and you may wish to feed some of them with the specially formulated food.


Hereford Racecourse

A day at the races is as casual or as formal as you want to make it.  For some it’s a get together with friends, for others it’s an excuse to dress up, especially on Ladies Day. Families are always welcome. Children under 16 can enter for free and enjoy free entertainment on certain days if accompanied by parents. Hereford has a full calendar of event so check the website and have a great day.
