Apart from the fantastic architecture and amazing history, we were fortunate enough to be there on the day there was a lunchtime organ recital and how the music filled the cathedral! This report will show as Oct 13 although we actually went in Sep 13. I've been a bit late in recording the visit.

Beautiful structure and design inside and out although much of the brass floor was ripped up to pay for the English civil war some elements still remain. Really nice feel and a pretty little place to have tea or coffee.

Wonderful place but it was disappointing not to be able to see the Mappa Mundi on a Sunday (as access is via the cafe which was closed).

Another great piece of ecclesiastical architecture. I have visited since before the Chained-Library was rehomed. I'm not religious but love the architecture it's given us. Was here for the recent Queen's visit too. Simply a calming, yet energising place to be.

We were very impressed by the upkeep of the Cathedral. We found the historical points of great help and we just loved the gardens.

I had wanted to visit this cathedral for a long time and a trip to Shropshire provided the perfect opportunity to drop in on the way home. I was particularly interested to see the brass memorials as well as the Mappa Mundi and Chained Library. The cathedral is not the most beautiful from the outside, nor are its close and... More

We visit here every summer/autumn and never cease to be raptured by the feeling of closeness to God, away from the noise off the City beyond the beautiful walls.

Readers of my tripadvisor reviews will know I am somewhat sanguine about some the great cathedrals of England - but not this one. It dates from 12th Century and has been extended and maintained since then. Look for the Romanesque arches, the shrines to St Thomas and St Ethelbert, the chantry chapel and stained glass in the Lady Chapel. Climb... More

On a visit to Hereford we decided to explore the cathedral and were very happy that we did. It is smaller than the neighbouring cathedral's of Gloucester and Worcester but well worth a visit. We decided to join the tour and this cost £4 each plus £3 for a photo permit but worth the money. Henry our guide was amazingly... More
