I have lived locally for 8 years and had not been in but I made a special effort to go into the cathedral and enjoyed looking around the lovely paintings and architecture, I will pop in more often and have a coffee in the nice little coffee shop there.

There is a gift shop and a cafe which are very popular. Just a short walk to the River Wye, and, although it cannot be accessed there is an... More

A realy beautiful Cathedral. We had coffee and cake,outside in the Cloisters. If the wether is inclement ,then the Cafe inside is nice as we'll. there's a gift shop. Nobody is pushy, you can just walk around,admiring this magnificent structure, that took 200 years to build!!

A gorgeous building inside and out well worth a visit Whether it's a long slow walk around or a quick visit you have to go and see inside this amazing place, I'm not religious but I do love to walk around it and sometimes in the summer we will have food on the grass outside, it's a free day out!!

The beautiful Hereford cathedral is well worth a visit. The Mappa Mundi is a real treasure and the chained library fascinating. The cathedral is peaceful and welcoming and the coffee shop is also very worthwhile if a little small! The surrounding area and the park and walk by the river is worth visiting too.

We were ushered in from our bench in the sunshine in the courtyard garden as it was about to close for evensong. The second courtyard remains open and the cathedral itself. So whilst we admired the Piper tapestries next to the ancient heater we were enthralled to see the red clad choristers arrive. The soloist voice was incredible as it... More

We happened to arrive in the middle of evensong on a Sunday and significantly increased the congregation! A trade off here is that the altar area was lit up. Unfortunately, the Mappa Mundi is not open on a Sunday, but it is a 'must', we returned the next day. The map itself is mind-blowing and the exhibition explaining it, very... More
