Hereford Cider MuseumHereford
Pomona Place
Herefordshire HR4 0EF
 
 
 
The market town of Hereford is surrounded by orchards of apples and pears, essential ingredients in the making of the alcoholic beverages of Cider and Perry. Perry is the correct name for cider made from pears.
 
Hereford’s long history of brewing cider and perry is told in this interesting museum. The museum was founded in 1973 to preserve the history of cider making worldwide. The extensive collections include cider mills, presses, bottles, old photographs, watercolours, advertising memorabilia and a rare collection of English lead crystal cider flutes.
 
Appropriately, the museum is housed in a former cider making brew house.
