The green dragon in Broad Street has been bought by a consortium of local investors who are planning to restore it to its former glory.

Work will begin on the restoration later this year.

I think this is money badly spent by the investors'. Premier Inn by the football ground is being built. When punters search for hotels online I doubt The Green Dragon will hit the radar. Hereford City, in my opinion, has very little to offer to tourists' from further afield.

I do not agree, this hotel is smack in the city centre and if done right will be the centre piece hotel, good to see people investing locally.

I am meeting a man who is stopping at the Green Dragon  at the end of the month with his wife . I will report back his observations .

( I accept that the refurbishment etc would not have commenced by then) 

As an aside the man I am meeting I last met on the 8th  January 1957 , we were both 15 yr olds who had joined the Recruits Troop , Boys Regt RA at Bradbury Lines .

Agree.You only have to look at the sucsess of Castle House to see that a revamp of the Green Dragon can only be a good thing.

The Cathedral would be fairly high up on the to visit list surely 

People (visitors) do 'buy into' local history. And ancient buildings. I accept that. But I think Hereford has not got enough 'bucket list' type draw factors, or events, to attract a steady stream of people regardless of the time of year. One major event that does act as a magnet is the beer/cider thing at the side of the Wye. People travel miles to spend money in Hereford for that. And camp.
