The market town of Kington is situated in the Marches border country of Herefordshire between England and Wales. Kington has had a long and sometimes turbulent history, lying west of Offa’s Dyke and east of the Black Mountains. This is mainly sheep country, although beef cattle do well here too.
There is a thriving livestock market in the centre of the town and we are proud of the number of small, independent shops and traders in our High Street. You can buy hand-made crafts, exquisite art, fresh local produce, hand-carved clogs, walking gear, old-fashioned sweeties, household goods, a fine cappuccino, tasty tapas and so much more in this little town that packs a cultural punch way beyond its size. There are plenty of places to stay, to eat, to relax and to refresh your spirit amidst some of the finest countryside in Britain.
