Such a lovely place to be. It had a beautiful calming atmosphere. We walked around soaking up the history, there is a lot to read and then went into a well stocked, if expensive, shop and bought postcards. There is also a nice clean coffee shop for drinks and snacks.

If you are visiting Hereford don't miss the chance to call in here. Yes the architecture alone is worth the visit but the crowning glory is the Mappa Mundi and the Chained Library. It was wonderful to have a volunteer/member of staff explain various points on the Mappa Mundi and it made our experience so much the richer. Thank you.

Herefordshire Cathedral famous for the Three Choirs Festival, the Bishops and the Mappa Mundi Exhibition. Well worth a visit to this Cathedral and have a chat to the stonemason too who is slowly restoring and replacing bits of history. As a special treat climb the stairs up the tower and see a birdseye view of Hereford.

A beautiful and historic cathedral. Excellent music from organ and choir especially in term time when the Cathedral school is there. Tuesday lunchtime organ recitals at 1.15.

Cathedrals don't usually float my boat, but Hereford is an exception. This is a fascinating place to visit with knowledgeable (staff) probably volunteers and lots of nooks and crannies to explore. Give yourself a good couple of hours to explore and a little more to enjoy the café and beautiful garden where you can eat on warm days. Don't forget... More

A place we always take our visitors. It is breathtakingly beautiful. We are so fortunate to live nearby. There are wonderful concerts. The Messiah at Christmas time never fails to be brilliant

We are a visiting choir from Canada, singing the services for a week. We were made so welcome, with most interesting tours, visits to the tower, Mappa Mundi and chained library .. Another era brought to life for us
