Magnificent cathedral centrally located in Hereford. Well worth a visit. The stained glass windows are magnificent and there is readily available much information on the history of the Cathedral including the famous Mappa Mundae

We visited the cathedral for the communion service at 9.30am. This was different to our communion in our local chuch. Everybody was very pleasant and inviting to strangers.

There is a chained library here worth seeing, and of course a copy of the Mappa Mundi - for which you have to pay to see. The café s ok, but doesn't serve breakfasts, but then just across from the cathedral along Church Lane there...More
