Did you know that under an old - and legend has it - un-repealed law it is it seems (in theory) legal to shoot a Welshman on a Sunday in Hereford, provided itís with a longbow and within the Cathedral close? Which seems a trifle harsh, especially given the longbow was perfected by the Welsh. We strongly suggest you donít test the law!

Did you know that Herefordís Bulmerís factory is the largest cider making factory in the world? It contains the worldís largest vat too Ė stainless steel tanks installed in 1975 hold 15 million gallons of cider! Thatís a hell of a student party.
