Set in a former cider making factory, visitors can explore original cider champagne cellars and view cidermaking equipment, a cooper''''s workshop and a vat house. Listen to oral history recordings and view 19th century watercolours of cider apples and perry pears and appreciate the delicately engraved collection of English lead crystal cider glasses dating from the 18th century onwards.

The Waterworks Museum

The Hereford Mappa Mundi is unique in Britain's heritage; an outstanding treasure of the medieval world, it records how thirteenth-century scholars interpreted the world in spiritual as well as geographical terms.
