Stately Cathedral

This is a beautiful cathedral that has been restored. There are magnificent stained glass windows. During the summer, they sometimes have noontime organ concerts.

We now limit ourselves to 3 churches a day when we are travelling! We are fascinated by the hundreds of years of life and death they represent, in addition to the religious experience. Hereford ranks in the top handful of cathedrals we have visited all over the world. The Mappa Mundi and chained library are unique of course, but there... More

Didn't go in, didn't have the time but it is an amazing building from the outside. So impressive, it's a must do next time I'm in Hereford.

I visit here regularly and it's a beautiful, quiet space. There's plenty of information if you're interested in the history of the building, and equally there are plenty of places to sit and reflect or just to be still. The staff and volunteers are always on hand and are very helpful. A lovely place to be.

The selection of food and drink on offer is nothing special but the courtyard garden is lovely. Dogs are allowed in which is a bonus.

Really we just went there to see the Mappa Mundi. It was quite expensive to get in I seem to recall but as it was along time ago, I can't remember exactly how much for the family. There are some interesting exhibits, etc before seeing a replica of the famous map which you can study at your leisure. Unfortunately, people... More

Beautiful Cathedral housing Mappa Mundi and other interesting displays to look at. The Architecture is simply superb. I would recommend a visit to this cathedral. Well worth a visit to Hereford just to go there.

Fantastic Cathedral, lots of information and the Chain Library containing the Mappa Mundi was first class (especially the very knowledgeable assistants). Lunch was good and staff were really friendly). Shame that the tourist experience died a death once we left the Cathedral. Don't get me wrong, Hereford is a great city with plenty of shops, just none that you wouldn't... More
