13 Indoor Rainy Day Things To Do In Herefordshire

Not many things are more of a buzz kill than when you’ve planned a glorious day out in the sun, but no surprise the classic English weather that we have all come to know and love has betrayed us and decides to bring the thunder, literally and metaphorically speaking.

We can all agree that the rain can sometimes put a dampener on things.. no pun intended, but why on earth does it have to be when we have the following 13 best activities for a rainy day in Herefordshire to keep you occupied when raining!

Don’t let the downpour stop you from exploring all that Herefordshire has to offer! You’ll be wishing for rain more often we bet!
