About Us

About us

Visit Herefordshire became a private not-for-profit company in April 2011 and is the established tourism marketing organisation for Herefordshire.

We are proud to work with over 300 businesses in the county, supporting the tourism economy and attracting even more visitors to experience our wonderful county and the diverse range of experiences..

Tourism is Herefordshire’s second biggest economy worth over £466 million in 2011, providing more than 8,500 FTE jobs within the county. With over 7,500,000 tourist days enjoyed within the county, we have much to shout about – and at Visit Herefordshire we do this nationally, regionally and locally using press, web, social media, PR and distribution.

Visit Herefordshire is…

• Chaired (acting) by Helen Thomas – MD Weston’s Cider
• Run by a Board (of Directors) drawn from across the business community
• The trading arm of The Herefordshire Trust (charity)
• A revenue generating organisation (to maintain the service)

We are…

• The established marketing and promotional organisation for Herefordshire tourism businesses
• An innovative and effective tourism marketing organisation working closely with local partners, neighbouring county tourism organisations, Visit England and Visit Britain
• The hub for all county, Hereford, group and cider route visitor enquiries
• The central hub for all tourism related stories, press and media enquiries and visits

The team at Visit Herefordshire are passionate – about tourism and about encouraging visitors to stay longer and more frequently to experience our wealth of attractions and activities, stunning scenery, great cultural and heritage experiences to sample our locally produced food – and so much more! With our hard work, you on board and working with local organisations we can achieve this together.
