If you're ever in Hereford then make a beeline for the cathedral and the surrounding area. The building and history inside is great and it's donation entry.

Attended the Christmas oratorio last night. The music was excellent such am amazing venue for a musical evening. It wasn't as cold as I had expected. Need to remember to take a cushion next time as chairs not good after 2 hours

I only had a short while to visit the Cathedral, as in Hereford on business, and I didn't have nearly long enough to read up on all the information, but still had enough time to wonder at its beauty. The current building dates back to 1079 and is a grade 1 listed building, but it was erected many years before... More

One of the very few English cathedrals with free entry!!The volunteers work very hard to keep it so nice. It is small enough to feel like a church but with marvellous history. It is worth a detour.

Fantastic couple of hours but make sure you visit the chain library as well with the famous Map of the world, also had a snack in the small cafe which was lovely on the warm afternoon we visited.

Always interested in looking inside the church or cathederal when visiting a town or city home or abroad. Hereford Cathederal is well maintained, not cold, bright and looked lovely at this time of year due to flowers and xmas trees.

This lovely building is right in the centre of Hereford. Inside it is really beautiful and just seems to go on and on with little areas that gradually reveal themselves. The Mappa Mundi is displayed and there are also some lovely tapestries. In fact there is lots to see and if it's a wet day as it was when I... More
