This vibrant town is set in beautiful surroundings with enviable views towards two local areas of outstanding natural beauty. With a history dating back to Norman times Bromyard is very traditional and full of independent shops, with a penchant for energetic festivals.
Town of Festivals
Bromyard’s reputation as the ‘Town of Festivals’ is well earned, where else would you find festivals celebrating town criers, motorsport, jazz and scarecrows. Highlights include Nozstock, a boutique festival billed as the Glastonbury of Herefordshire. The Festival of Speed celebrates motoring history and attracts over 5000 people each year. The 44 year old Bromyard Gala; a showcase of vintage and classic cars, steam engines, crafts and country life, is one of the most popular events of the year.
Back in Time
The town’s history is recorded by
The Bromyard & District Local History Society. Open three days a week it contains a large archive, library and exhibition room. For lovers of sci-fi the very quirky Time Machine Museum of Science Fiction houses the finest collection of television science fiction props and costume memorabilia. Think Doctor Who, Star Wars and Star Trek. Their collection of antique teddy bears and dolls is one of the finest in the world.
