It is hard to imagine not going inside the Hereford Cathedral and seeing a copy of the Magna Carta during its 800 year anniversary. Quite a stunning cathedral I. This land of old churches and cathedrals. It is worth the time to see!

There is much to see here. Magnificent architecture, stunning stained glass, relics and tombs. Then there is the Mappa Mundi and chained library exhibition which is well worth the entrance fee. Think of it as contribution to maintaining these unique and fascinating treasures of our heritage

The cathedral is a must to see. We were especially lucky because an organist was practicing while we were there - this gave the fantastic architecture an additional special atmosphere.

Hereford Cathedral has been associated with key events and individuals in the history of the British Isles for centuries. It is a wonderful building anyway, full of examples of intricate and detailed medieval sculptures, painting and carvings,and the addition of the Mappa Mundi, the incredible Chained Library and the Magna Carta exhibition only serves to heighten its appeal.

If you are at all interested in English history, you must visit. See the Mappa Mundi and a copy of the Magna Carta in the same room. It's like a history lesson but more interesting! You can also see some medieval graffiti. Stunning stained glass windows and very pleasant coffee shop.

Serenely beautiful cathedral to visit with outstanding stained glass towering above. Slipped in here on a hot summer day, purchased a photography ticket as well, and enjoyed capturing all the colours and patterns in the windows, tombs, pews, wood carvings, and grave stones. Outstanding piece of history to get lost in.

Well, its a cathedral, so its large, cool, pleanty to see. Some particularly fine modern stained glass windows, and a café with indoor and outdoor seating and good food; and an exhibition area with the Mappa Mundi, an early map of the world, and an original MAgna Carta from 1217

It was a bright sunny day and showed the interior off to its best. It was good not to feel forced to give a donation to get inside. The floor is reasonably flat and most areas would be accessible to wheelchair users. Definitely worth a look round.
