Shoppers and visitors will be able to park for free in town and city centre car parks this Christmas in a bid to make Herefordshire a prime Christmas shopping destination.

Herefordshire Council car parks in Hereford city centre, including the Old Market and on-street pay & display, will be free for shoppers after 4pm for late night Christmas shopping on Wednesday 22 and 29 November and 6, 13 and 20 December. There will be a range of shops open late, including Maylord Orchards, the Old Market and High Town and the surrounding area.

These concessions do not apply to any of the private car parks in the city centre, except the Old Market.

  • Ross-on-Wye Christmas lights switch on: Sunday 19 November
  • Ledbury Christmas lights switch on: Saturday 25 November
  • Kington Food & Drink Festival: Saturday 2 December
