Ancient roots

Buying a new build in Hereford makes you one of the millions of people who have walked through its ancient streets. This city has a history to be proud of, home to saints and kings and acting as the backdrop to many major historical events. 

Paying testament to this rich history is its iconic cathedral. Home to the UNESCO Memory of the World-registered Mappa Mundi - the largest medieval map to exist - and one of four copies of the Magna Carta, this magnificent building represents the mark Hereford has made on the world. 

The Independent Quarter is also an opportunity to step back in time while enjoying some flavoursome food, too. Dating back to Saxon times, this part of the city houses independent shops and markets offering the best of local produce, as well as clothing shops, hairdressers and more

Looking forward

Hereford’s roots stretch way back - and there’s still more to see. This is a future-forward city that’s an exciting place for homebuyers. If you’re looking to live in a location where you feel you can make a difference, then buying a home in Hereford is a great next step. 

Its leading sectors are manufacturing, agriculture and food and drink, with Hereford Beef, Tyrrells Crisps and Weston’s Cider just some of the popular brands from here. The New Model Institute for Technology & Engineering has been described as ‘an innovator in engineering education’, offering degrees such as Sustainable Built Environment and Integrated Engineering, both of which focus on developing the skills needed for the future.
