Leominster Travel Guide: 9 reviews and 39 photos

Leominster (promounced Lemster) is located in the heart of the beautiful border countryside, where England and Wales meet. It is a great historic Market town which dates back to the 7th Century.

Some say that Leominster is named after Earl Leofric, the husband of Lady Godiva who famously rode naked through the streets of Coventry on horseback. Others say that Leominster takes its name from a minster which was in the district of Lene or Leon.

Shopping in Leominster

The town centre is awash with great looking black and white timbered buildings which house quaint coffee shops, pubs and a whole range of other establishments. The picturesque shopping streets house a number of high street shops and many unique local boutiques.

Green Leominster

Leominster has some great open spaces just a stones throw away from the town. The Grange is a great parkland area which has many benches, play area and is a perfect place to take a picnic.
