Today, we're heading for Leominster, "The Town in the Marches".
Our day trip destination is located in the heart of Herefordshire and the beautiful border countryside, where England and Wales nudge each other back and forth along Offa's Dyke.
Leominster (pronounced 'Lemster') is an historic market town, which dates back to the 7th century.
Here you will find a wide variety of shops, cafes, pubs and antique shops, making Leominster the ideal place to spend a lazy afternoon strolling around in the pleasant surroundings of an historic wool town.
This quintessentially English town features a host of attractions including mediaeval black and white buildings and antique shops.
Don't miss Leominster Museum, The Lion Ballroom, and Leominster Priory, a place of gathering for over 1350 years where you can reflect on medieval justice – with a look at one of England’s last surviving ducking stools, plus Grange Court, a Grade II* listed timber-framed market hall built by John Abel in 1633.
We depart Chester station at 9.35am and arrive in Leominster at 11.19am just in time for a mid-morning refreshment break!
Our return journey starts from Leominster at 4.43 pm and arrives in Chester at 6.22pm. The return fare is £32.10.
