The Green Dragon Hotel dates all the way back to the 11th century, when it housed the stonemasons who were building Hereford Cathedral. The 900 years since then have provided the hotel with a fascinating history of royal connections.
Hereford -- derived from the Welsh word for a river crossing -- is a city filled with history, at the centre of which is Hereford Cathedral, which is a 2-minute walk from the hotel. It is believed that settlers first arrived in Hereford as far back as 676 AD. You can explore this history at the Mappa Mundi -- the world's largest medieval map -- and Chained Library Exhibitions at Hereford Cathedral. Hereford Cider Museum is less than 15 minutes' walk from the hotel, and the 18th-century Berrington Hall mansion and its gardens are a 35-minute drive away.
It is believed that Edward, Earl of March -- later to become King Edward IV -- used the hotel as his base throughout the Wars of the Roses in the 15th century, and that Owen Tudor was imprisoned at the hotel prior to his execution -- you can see his battle sword on display at the Town Hall.
The hotel received a £2.5 million refurbishment in early 2019. The new Superior Rooms feature a super king-size bed, USB charging sockets and other modern amenities. The Hereford Brasserie at the Green Dragon Hotel prides itself on showcasing the very best of local Herefordshire produce, from vodka and vegan wine, to cheese and handmade scotch eggs. The Garrick Lounge is adorned with classic furnishings and cosy sofas -- perfect for afternoon tea -- while the stylish Offa Bar has a selection of locally produced ciders.
