Lovely Cathedral, so peaceful and calming

Visited on a hot day, the Cathedral is cool and and calming. The architecture is as one would expect, simply stunning.

Nice to ging a cathedral in the UK that doesn't charge an entrance fee. Beautiful Norman style cathedral with well written information boards. Missed out on tower tour due to services in the church so can't comment on it's value for money (extra charge to climb). Mappa Mundi and chained library are worth a visit but felt it was a... More

A tremendous space, lots of ancient historical connections, likelihood of entertainment in the courtyard, good food in the café.

It turns out that strolling around a cathedral is definitely enhanced by hearing a jazz quartet from the garden! Some lovely stained glass windows, old and new, to see too.

Very welcoming and you don't have to pay an entrance fee! Beautiful gardens and refectory as well as magnificent architecture and an unusual crown of gold suspended above the nave.

We moved to Hereford a year ago and, although we have stepped inside several times, we have always wanted to do the 'cathedral tour' but hadn't quite found the time... until today. With our two children in tow, we turned up to the cathedral shop at 11.00 am and paid for 4 tickets (£14) before being welcomed by Melanie, our... More

I visit your café regularly and like your food and drink but the only let down is the noise of the chairs when they are moved which makes it impossible to enjoy a meal or any kind of visit,please rectify or I will have to find alternative café or recommend your café until this problem is rectified properly.

This cathedral sits close to the river Wye and is at the start of the town centre as you cross the river bridge. Although it is in grounds it also sits close to the thoroughfare making it feel integral to the centre. It looks small for a cathedral, not austere and overbearing at all and the stone has a lovely... More
