Located in the county of Herefordshire, the city of Hereford is close to the border with Wales and lies on the River Wye. H.Art, or Herefordshire Art Week, is an annual county-wide exhibition held in September, displaying the work of local artists. Many places usually closed to the public are opened during this week, such as the Bishop's Palace at the Cathedral. Another attraction in the city is the Hereford Cider Museum which includes a shop and an interactive guide on how to make cider. The museum was established by people who wanted to record the traditional art of cider making. The museum is housed in a former cider factory and was opened in the early 1980's. Since the mid 1980's, friends of the museum hold an annual International Cider Festival.
