Coming to Kington?
Kington is one of the five market towns of Herefordshire, located in the north of the county. It has an interesting mix of architecture spanning centuries of British history, and retains a homely, rural mien that’s evident throughout the town. It’s part of a delightful “black and white village trail”, that’s bordered by timber-framed Tudor houses, and the popular Hergest Croft Gardens are just west of the town’s limits.
Discover the Shropshire Hills
A designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Shropshire Hills are an absolute must-see for anyone visiting the Birmingham area.

With acres of scenery to take your breath away, the Shropshire Hills are a wonderful place to walk off the stress and soak in a rare patch of unspoilt nature.
Exploring Hergest Croft Gardens
Nestled in the heart of the Welsh Marshes, Hergest Croft is a stunning formal garden, boasting one-of-a-kind views of the Black Mountains. The house itself is a wonderful example of Victorian architecture, and was used as a school for evacuees during World War II. Its gardens exhibits a beautiful collection of rare trees, plants, and shrubs, including over 90 “champion” trees.
