Leominster

UK travel information

The market town of Leominster is located in Herefordshire, England, approximately 12 miles from Hereford and is the second largest town in the county.

There are a number of impressive buildings in and around Leominster, including Croft Castle, a building that has been on the site from the 11th century and it has from this time been the home of the Croft family. The present building originated as a castle in the 14th century and has undergone many alterations. Another building of interest is Berrington Hall, a country house of neoclassical style that belongs to the National Trust.
