This is a wonderful building.. The stain glass windows and high sculptured ceilings are breath taking.. I was taken in by every piece of art I came across. The cathedral is full of suprises and I loved every second.

Husband & I visited this wonderful cathedral last week. Many thanks to our volunteer guide, Bob for an extremely interesting & entertaining tour which ended up being a private tour. Also to Verger Stephan, for allowing me to store my shopping & wet brolly near his office but in particular for allowing me, after a word from Bob, access to... More

I have been to most but not all of the Cathedrals in England and Wales. I like them because of their grandeur, because of the achievement they represent because of the faith which persuaded people to undertake such extraordinary undertakings. My favourite to date is St Davids but Hereford is now equal first. It is a live building not just... More

This Cathedral has such a friendly atmosphere - You can really believe it is at the heart of the community. It runs tours twice a day, and a tower tour on Wed, Thurs and Saturdays (but check first). The Cathedral has a couple of little Chapels, one with fabulous Thomas Treherne stained windows designed by Tom Denny and another that... More

Beautiful Cathedral stunning ceilings, crafted tomb covers of knights gone by, the walk up the 218 steps for a view of the city is well worth it.

Lovely cathedral set in attractive old portion of Hereford. Beautiful stained glass. Mappa Mundi and incomparable Chained Library. Excellent tea served in lively cafe that makes the cathedral come alive. So glad we went.

A very interesting display of this ancient map. Friendly and knowledgeable attendant helped explained the map which is in latin. There is a modern English version on display and I would recommend viewing this before the map itself. One criticism (applicable to many other attractions in this country as well): why are the labels only in English?

We went to the cathedral to see the Map a Mundi on a bit of a whim. but we enjoyed a cultural/religioius/historical trip back in to the 13th century that was well worth the visit. The story of the map is well told through displays, video and by a very helpful guide. Highly recommended!
