It’s a small rural market town. Not sure about public transport but I’m aware it’s very sporadic in that area. I have family members who live in the area who all drive as they go into Ludlow, Leominster and Kidderminster for larger shops. Hopefully someone with a bit more knowledge of the place will be along soon.
It’s very small. There is limited public transport and there nearest big shops are as, a previous poster said, in Local towns. Local being a 20 minute drive on standard, non dual carriageway roads.
There is a small high street and beautiful scenery but that is about it. Everything closes early.
We moved to a slightly bigger local town just over a year ago and I hate it. The scenery is beautiful but everything is painfully slow I.E 4 times as long to arrange a rental property than anywhere else I have lived.
But you’re only there for a month so you’ll be fine.
Leominster probably has a little bit more going on than Tenbury. They’ve got a WH Smith, Aldi, Morrison’s and a selection of independent shops.
I do think you’ll struggle without a car. If you fly into Birmingham can you hire one from there? We used to have a caravan about 5 miles outside Leominster and you couldn’t even get a taxi if you wanted to venture out for a meal and a drink! The area is lovely and there are lots of fab restaurants and pubs but you definitely need your own transport!
Usually you call for a taxi they say great is 30 mins okay and you say yes.
In this part of the world you spend 30 mins ringing all the taxi companies. When one finally answers to say they were fully booked 7 days in advance. A lot of the time they don’t even show up when booked. (Bitter experience)
I think your going to have to be at the mercy of colleuges, im afraid.
I grew up very close, in fact my parents live between there and the next local town, bromyard, and ermm theres no or very little public transport. Taxis in to places like leominster, kidderminster etc are going to be very expensive.
Sorry to break this to you, honestly you'll be better hiring a car
