It never ceases to amaze me when I see these wonderful pieces of historic architecture, I am 100% Atheist but I can spend hours walking around and inside these beautiful buildings. The workmanship that went into building these enormous places of worship is just fascinating. Hereford Cathedral is truly a great architectural building, the vaulted ceilings, the huge stone pillars... More

Love this cathedral, but it's a bit like a building site at the moment with the electrics being modified.

not enough seating for disabled and cost to much for a drink when you can go to Morrison's café and get a pot of tea for a pound

The cathedral close has been landscaped now and the improvement is clear to see. The building itself is almost clear of scaffolding following the cleaning and stonework renovations. Try to visit the masons' yard near the North entrance - very interesting work in there.

I can only endorse all the previous positive comments about this lovely building. We are so lucky to have it as part of our county town.

I have been to Hereford Cathedral several times, and each time I go I find something else to marvel at. It is just so beautiful, so historic, and if you have the time to read the inscriptions, there is a story around every corner. Give it the time it deserves to soak up all it has to offer. I have...

Beautiful building with plenty of historic value. Only downside is that I hate shops in religious buildings, but that is personal.

This has to be one of the most beautiful cathedral s we have ever visited. The architecture is amazing with lots of information boards and plenty of helpful staff. Entrance is free but donations are gladly accepted to help with the upkeep, we were only too happy to make a donation. The cafe is also very welcoming with good homemade... More

Hereford boasts a mid-sized cathedral accessed via Church Street: a delightful medieval street in sharp contrast to the rest of the city centre, which is all a bit depressing. The cathedral is a quiet but atmospheric space. The lady chapel is simply stunning and the new stained glass windows just off this are superb. Unlike many cathedrals in the UK,... More

Despite having tickets (and good connections) one had to be there very early to get a good(i.e. hard, uncomfortable) seat. But worth the effort and discomfort nonetheless!
