The museum houses a rare collection of early cider-making equipment, including a massive beam press and reconstructions of horse-drawn presses and machinery. The informative display boards are beautifully presented and the original Bulmer's Cider Co. board room is preserved. Below, you can wander through the cellars and see the old bottling and labelling plants and there is plenty of audio... More

A brilliant museum with lighting that turns itself on as you walk through the history of cider and cidermaking. A shining display of different glasses used to serve the drink. Friendly explainers were on hand to answer any questions that you had and a small sample at the end of your tour. The cafe served good coffee and home-made cakes... More

Great little museum with cider-making artifacts from Hereford and around the world. The gift shop has a nice selection of cider as well as cider-related books and other goods. The staff are friendly and helpful.

Hello - I'm sorry to hear that and a bit puzzled! We have lots of cider for sale from Herefordshire and beyond in the shop, and you can sit in the café and open it if you want to. We also have Oliver's on draught in the café. More

First of all thank you to the lady manning reception, meet & greet, cafe and shop for being so friendly and welcoming - an asset to the team I'd say and nice to see someone who likes their job!

We enjoyed our visit and we almost had a private tour. It was very quiet that day, for the 11am tour with the exception of a small group of school children we saw when we arrived. As we left there seemed to be a few more people arriving for the 12.30 tour. Whilst it was interesting, I think it is... More

This is a review for Westons cider factory tour at Much Marcle, I'm afraid, not the Hereford Cider Museum in the city. Are you able to change it, please? We charge £5.50 per adult and £3 for children, so wouldn't want people to panic thinking it might cost them £10 to get in! Many thanks. More

Hereford Cider Museum has recently been refurbished. It is a large museum with fantastic information about how Cider was made and the shop exhibits lots of local ciders which some samples can be tried. The tea room is very relaxed and offers food (ploughman's with a Cider it if you fancy). The staff are extremely welcoming and full of knowledge... More
