Worcester is also within easy driving distance and offers a wealth of restaurants, shops, entertainment and attractions. Other places to visit in the area include the historic Eastnor Castle surrounded by a beautiful arboretum, lake and deer park, the beautiful gardens at Hampton Court offering a variety of events throughout the year and the popular tourist town of Symmonds Yat. There is also horse racing at Hereford and Cheltenham and the many farmers' markets hosted in the local market towns of Ledbury, Ross-on-Wye and Hay-on-Wye - also home of the Guardian Literary Festival. Another wonderful place to explore is the Hereford Cathedral and Mappa Mundi which is unique in Britain's heritage. An outstanding treasure of the medieval world, it records how 13th century scholars interpreted the world in spiritual as well as geographical terms.
