Not to be confused with Kingston.

Kington (Welsh: Ceintun) is a small market town in Herefordshire, lying on the River Arrow and alongside the Welsh border, in the shadow of Hergest Ridge. It is a popular stop-off point for people walking the Offa's Dyke Path.


Get in[edit]

Kington has no train service. Buses run from Leominster, Hereford, and nearby towns.

  • 2 Hergest Ridge. Elongated hill, overlooking the town, and which traverses the border between England and Wales. Hergest Ridge (Q1744054) on Wikidata Hergest Ridge on Wikipedia



The High Street is narrow and can be a little annoying with traffic but contains a number of interesting individual privately owned shops rather than the national chains you find in many towns.


Check out the pies from the butchers on the High Street. The Burton Hotel (see below) has a good restaurant.
