The city of Hereford is home to many individual, quirky businesses and a whole host of expert artisan makers. Not only a great base to explore the beautiful surrounding countryside or spend a weekend enjoying the city vibes, sampling our most famous exports - namely cider - it is also the namesake of our most iconic shade: The Hereford Globe.
With prices starting from £130 the Hereford Globe comes in a choice of four sizes, five glass options and is available as a pendant light, wall light, IP44 bathroom fitting and within a cluster as a feature chandelier.

You can’t get any more Herefordshire than a handmade gourmet burger! Founded by two brothers Dorian & Edwin who decided to bring “great dining experiences to the people of Hereford”. The small but mighty menu houses some absolute mouth-watering food from the all-time classic ‘Farmer Tom burger’ to Vegan and gluten free alternatives.
Whilst you are waiting for your Hereford burger of choice, lean back and take a look at the high ceilings decked in beautiful pendant lights, supplied by Fritz Fryer which help to enhance this beautiful, ambient dining experience.

The ultimate photographic landmark – The old bridge.
Whether you are a camera whiz or a keen explorer, the old bridge is a must visit! Connecting the ancient city to its surrounding countryside, the bridge offers a beautiful vantage point of the city and its historic cathedral which houses the Mappa Mundi, the largest medieval map known to exist, dating from year 1300 that gives us an insight to how our ancestors viewed the world all those years ago.

If you are in need of some interior inspiration, look no further.
Located on St Martins Street, More Interiors aren’t your typical interiors company, as they specialise in designer kitchens and bathrooms, offering ranges from well-known brands such as Diesel & Scavolini.
Their newly built showroom is definitely one to visit, some of the room sets offer inspiration to all, alongside a few sets that only some that only dreams are made of!
Once you have explored all of the lower level of their gorgeous showroom head up the staircase where you will be greeted by a Fritz Fryer Hereford ribbed chandelier.
So what has this got to do with Fritz Fryer you may ask?
It may be a small city, but Hereford has a lot to offer, so this is why we named our most versatile light after it The Hereford Globe. Like all our glass shades, the Herefords are made by expert glass blowers, exclusively for us here in the UK.
Whether you’re searching for that perfect wall light for a small space or, just like More Interiors, a statement light that is going to capture imaginations and create an experience for your showroom guests, or if you are looking for some decorative IP44 lights, the handmade Hereford Globe has that covered. Not only can it be situated anywhere (within reason) it is available in four sizes and a whopping six glass finishes.
