Car & Van Rental in Hereford?
Hereford is a picturesque cathedral city sitting upon the River Wye in the west of England, just 16 miles east of the Welsh border. It is a lively market city with a strong agricultural heritage that dates back to Saxon times, but today it is also very much a contemporary city with many independent shops and a thriving nightlife and calendar of cultural events and festivals.
The town sits just by the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), a protected landscape that is one of the most beautiful in the south of Britain. It is an area of rugged limestone gorges and native woodlands and is home to internationally important nature reserves and important archaeological sites. It is best to explore this rich and diverse landscape by car to its full potential, taking in the very best that the region has to offer.
Enterprise’s Hereford branch is conveniently located on Holmer Road, one of the main thoroughfares leading into the city centre, and just a short distance from the train station.
