Great Attraction in City Centre

This was an awesome wee surprise in the city centre. Lovely service behind the counter, and the museum itself was very interesting too. Great stuff.

Really interesting to walk round. Bigger than it looks - over 3 floors, laid out with furniture to help you imagine how it might have been originally. Staff are not at all pushy - there if you want to ask questions but if you just want to wander around they leave you to it, so you can spend ten minutes... More

Situated in the middle of one of the main streets in Hereford – High Town – you can hardly miss it. It is so obvious that most people ignore it yet it is one of the most fascinating gems in Hereford. It may be small but it encompasses much of Tudor life. The exhibits are enthralling and well annotated. There... More

Very well preserved old building with contemporary furniture and old pictures. Worth visiting when in Hereford but perhaps not for making a special trip.

The Old House is situated in the middle of the high street, looking out of place. It's a lovely building with its uneven and creaking floors. It's free and will take your five or ten minutes to look around.

Lovely old house in "black and white" style. Free admission, well worth a visit! Have a look for the Hereford bull outside!
