Hereford High Town improvements

Improvements in the High Town area are designed to create an attractive, vibrant city centre to encourage visitors and shoppers to stay longer, spend and enjoy their leisure time, helping support existing businesses and create opportunities for retailers.

Ongoing refurbishment across the city centre is set to further enhance the retail environment. The improvements also help create an excellent space for pedestrians and cyclists and ensure a clean, modern and clutter-free city centre.

Work to refurbish Commercial Street was completed in March 2019, enhancing the city as an attractive and easily accessible destination for visitors and shoppers.

Since it opened in May 2014, the Old Market development has improved the leisure and shopping experience in Hereford and has brought more people to the city.

The refurbishment of Widemarsh Street in 2010 created a popular and attractive link between the old and new parts of the city and the High Town refurbishment extends this area.
