Whatever you do in Hereford, make sure that you visit The Old House. It is absolutely stunning and so beautifully laid out that we spent nearly two hours walking round it. They have so much wonderful furniture there and I was fascinated to read the books they had in every room describing the furniture, artifacts plus a description of what... More

This 1621 Jacobean timber framed 3 storey building is now a museum open to the public for free. Situated in the middle of town it looks beautiful on the outside & is richly furnished with period furniture & paintings on the inside.The stairs are quite steep in keeping with the age of the house but is well worth the climb.Friendly...

Situated right in the centre of town but not overly publicised this three-storey timber framed black and white house was moved to this location some years ago. You cannot fail to be impressed by its structure and contents. You would imagine this house to haver been occupied by somebody of status rather than those of more humble origin - originally... More

Good for a city walk, plenty old houses with the old wooden house in the centre, not sure what it is, no signs, being extremely rich and beautiful. Also visit the cathedral.

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

The house has a long and proud history of serving the local people of Hereford. It has undergone many changes in not just occupation but uses being a butchers then several other incarnations, before being a Lloyds Bank. It has Jacobean features and has many lovely items on display. There was no charge for the museum so if you are... More

I do tend to get dragged around many hundreds of old houses by the 'boss'...but this one was worth the visit. Lovely furniture with gorgeous patina. Have a look.
