Views of the Hall

A great venue for all manner of family, business and community group activities and events, licensed for music, films and shows and for the sale of alcohol where required at an event. Conveniently situated at the west end of the village beside the River Leadon and with its own private car park, Bosbury Parish Hall is located in Bosbury, near Ledbury, Herefordshire, United Kingdom. Postcode is HR8 1PU for satnav location purposes.

Bosbury is situated on the B4220 five miles north of the historic market town of Ledbury. This is convenient for car travel from anywhere in England via the M5 and M50 and from Wales via Hereford or Ross-on-Wye. The Hall is on the 417 bus route and a short distance from the nearby mainline railway station in Ledbury.

The village is proud of its historic black-and-white public house, the Bell Inn, formerly a coaching inn, with good food and well-presented draught beers.
