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.

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.

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

Right in the centre of Hereford you can't miss this tudor building which you can take a look around. Worth a look. Great to see we look after our heritage.

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.

Great little gem in the centre of High Town. This lovely old house is opening all week apart from Sunday and Monday - its free, so even if you pop in for just a quick look around you have lost nothing. They do ask for a donation - or there is a little shop bit - you could always buy... More

This is a very nice old house in Hereford at the Square and the end of Commercial St. It's a 17th century merchant's house. Unfortunately it was not open but we had a look from outside though. Would have loved to get in there Looked interesting. An Amazing building.
