Lots to see here as would be expected from an ancient Cathedral. The Mappa Mundi is well worth seeing.

The cathedral is huge. We were there for the Sunday morning bell ringing and it was beautiful to hear. Lovely surrounding area and walk up to the cathedral too.

Hereford cathedral is very nice but not the most inspiring of buildings in itself. However, what it contains is truly amazing from the historical perspective. I am talking about the Mappa Mundi (The map of the world) and the Chain Library. The MM depicts the view of the known world from the middle ages perspective and is an absolute must... More

The choir is sensational and the building stunning. The evening service is a must for those who want quiet reflection in an ancient and magical setting

Loads to see and reflect upon inside plus the Mappa Mundi beyond the lovely Cathedral Cafe and toilets. I miss this landmark already having moved from Hereford last summer

Unlike Worcester Cathedral i experienced a far better visit here. I met with a Chaplain and nothing was too much trouble. I appreciated that.The Chaplain met with me quickly when i asked if any clergy were available. Well done Hereford.I hope Worcester learn from this and get clergy out among the people to be of service.

All around the cathedral there are excellent information notices to help understand the history of the place and significance of the various sights/artefacts. There was a friendly welcome and plenty of advice from volunteers if needed. Our guided tour was excellent with a very knowledgeable and personable guide.

I visited the cathedral towards the end of the day, and was lucky enough to stumble in during the Evensong choral performance, which was a really beautiful experience that really showed off the amazing acoustics that large churches and cathedrals are famous for. Even with only a few others present, it was very special. The cathedral itself is a beautiful... More
