The cathedral has some beautiful stained glass windows old and new. The grounds are well tended and well worth the visit. A calm and peaceful place.

I love the history that is encapsulated in Cathedrals and Hereford Cathedral is no exception. There is a special exhibition (Mappa Mundy), which we didn't see, but there is lots of other things in the Cathedral worth seeing!

Very friendly and knowlegable staff on hand to explain features or answer queries.Unusually, there is no admission charge to the cathedral - only a donation welcome on leaving. An added...More

A great example of an English Cathedral. There some stunning stained glass windows and an overall feeling of quiet peace. Mappa Mundi was too expensive to go to given our limited time available.

Thank Mark D

As others have commented, we do not offer public parking at all, as space around the cathedral is so limited. If disabled visitors are coming to a special event, they may contact the cathedral office - details on our... More

Yes, it will. The Liturgy of the Passion is quite long - it probably won't finish until well after three o'clock - but once it is over the cathedral will be open until after Evening Prayer which is said at 5.30 pm in the... More
