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

Its beautiful inside and well maintained the ceilings and windows are amazing. There is a courtyard garden with beautiful flowers and shrubs and picnic tables plus an... More

I visited Hereford Cathedral whilst the Flower Festival was taking place. I had never been before and was over awed by the atmosphere inside the Cathedral itself, made all the more awesome by the wonderful flower displays, especially those dedicated to the Great War. Although it was crowded, there was still room to circulate round the exhibits and chat to... More

Hereford is a delightful town and any visit should include a trip to the Cathedral and the Mappa Mundi..Smaller than most cathedrals but just as impressive both inside and out. enjoy!

Of course, you have to visit the cathedral and it is undoubtedly a beautiful building, especially on the outside. We found the interior less striking, apart from the Ladies' Chapel which was luminescent. The garden, which also provides seating for the cafe, is delightful and a credit to the volunteers who ensure its upkeep.

With Jerusalem at the Centre and Sri Lanka being on the opposite edge of the known world with Cathay China to UK - No Americas, obviously - this map along with explanations in written word or sound must have been a revelation to Middle Ages Man. The ancient scripts in the chain library show how far we have come on... More

Visited to see the Mappa Mundi which was incredible along with the chained library. Lots of information given in displays before going into see the actual map. Very informative guide inside darkened room where map is displayed, well worth seeing. Our visit coincided with festival of flowers event in the cathedral which was just stunning, along with the cathedral itself... More
