The Old House is exactly what is says on the tin and while it won't take you long to have a look around it, it's defnitely an interesting and worthwhile experience, especially as entry is free. It's a remarkably well perserved house that acts like a time capsule, giving you a glimpse a what life was like in Hereford in... More

A old house giving a glimpse of how people use to live, due to the age of the exhibits most of them had notices on them saying do not touch. There are very steep stairs to the bedrooms and notices round the building telling you about the house. There was no staff while we were there to tell you about... More

It's hard to believe how old this house is but very interesting to see how people lived all those years ago. It's a shame more old buildings haven't been preserved for future generations.

We had no idea you could go inside especially for free, it's a lovely house. Very old with lots of information inside.

What a disappointment. Hereford was busy, the cathedral was thronged with visitors and yet the sixth placed attraction in Hereford is closed a lot of the time. I had to Walk round the building twice looking for the way in before I spotted a faded photo copy of the opening times hiden away behind leaded glass. As with much of... More

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...

Just the right size to do a touristy thing, look at the door door and trot off to the pub! I live in Hereford and go... More
