The Herefordshire city of Hereford hosts the annual Three Choirs Festival every third year. The festival dates back to the eighteenth century and is one of the oldest music festivals in the United Kingdom. Hereford hosts the festival with the cities of Gloucester and Worcester. The city has a number of small galleries and celebrates art with an annual exhibition held in September called Herefordshire Art Week which displays the work of local artists. During the exhibition many public places are closed including the Bishop's Palace and the Cathedral.
The city has a number of historic buildings including The Old House which is a black and white house in the centre of the city. It is now a museum about the Jacobean era of the 1600's. Located in the city is the Hereford Cider Museum which contains a shop and a fully interactive guide on how to produce cider. The city also hosts The International Cider Festival which began in the 1980's and is held in the spring/summer.
The city was also home to Hereford Racecourse, a traditional National Hunt course to the north of the city centre which hosted around twenty meetings a year. Unfortunately the company who leased the site decided in 2012 that the site was not viable. The last meeting was held on 16 December 2012.
Located in West Yorkshire, the city of Leeds is the largest city in the county and is an attractive city with Georgian, Victorian, 20th and 21st century architecture to enjoy. There are many museums, cafes, restaurants and theatres to visit. Leeds is within easy reach of the Yorkshire Dales, the Yorkshire Moors and the Peak District. In the centre of Leeds is the main shopping area which is a roughly half mile square between The Headrow, Vicar Lane, Boar Lane and Park Row. The main shopping street is the broad and bustling Briggate where many flagship stores can be found, including Harvey Nichols and House of Fraser.
Centred on the massive dome of the Corn Exchange, the Exchange Quarter is the centre of Leeds' bohemian life, with one-off boutiques, funky cafés and piercing parlours filling its pretty cobbled streets. It is becoming increasingly chic with a wide range of upscale bars and stylish restaurants, particularly on Call Lane.
The main tourist information office for the city is in the railway station, but there are various other information points across the city (e.g. Central Lending Library, The Headrow).
