The 'must see' attraction in Hereford where there is little to attract the visitor. You must visit Hereford Cathedral even if you visit nothing else in the city.

A very interesting place to visit when you visit Hereford. If you get a chance to hear the choir singing, you get the great feel and to hear the the true sounds from this old.building. The painted glass windows are of great Interest, you should go see the old map stored at the catheral, as well the chained library

I was on a shopping trip to Hereford and took the opportunity to visit the Cathedral. It was very atmospheric and we had the bonus of a craft fayre to wander around thought the lack of lighting made it tricky to see the goods on offer. Worth a re-visit sometime

After a tour through the cathedral I felt like I saw things through a new light. The information given was amazing. The building itself is breathtaking with so much history. A definite must see when in Hereford.

I've visited Cathedrals all over Europe but still find Hereford's catherdral a strong candidate for best. Unique, lots to explore and situated in the heart of Hereford.

My wife and I spent five hours in the cathedral, also visiting the Mappa Mundi exhibition and chained library. The inside of the cathedral is simply stunning, on a much smaller scale than York or Lincoln and similar in architecture and size to Wells. We both noticed how much the cathedral was involved with the local community, particularly with schools... More
