Coming from York, Hereford is not quite so grandiose but it is well presented and looks well maintained. We arrived on a bitterly cold day and it was none too warm inside. We didn’t try the adjoining cafe but it looked clean and tidy with...More

We attended a couple of Choral Evensongs and did the guided tour. All splendid! The welcome from the volunteers seemed heartfelt - perhaps because there were few other visitors in January.

Lovely cathedral with beautiful stained glass windows. A walk through the cloisters to the Cafe garden is a must for a summer visit. Love the sculpture in the path at the front of the cathedral and the miniature building

Visited here during a visit to Hereford & surrounding over the Christmas period. Our daughter wanted to visit ‘the castle’ so we headed over & we weren’t disappointed. Absolutely beautiful & so much to see there, so much history & very pretty at that time...More

Really enjoyed our visit. The building itself is stunning and has a lovely atmosphere. We loved the Mappa Mundi and chained library too. We also appreciated the fact that there was no admission charge, just a request for donations

The Cathedral is stunning from both the exterior and inside. The physical scale of the building is so impressive. Spacious exterior grounds, plenty of history, impressive stained glass, an excellent guided tour - and the Mappa Mundi ! Wonderful.

The Cathedral was beautiful, so much to see inside, including some beautiful stained glass windows. Lovely welcome as we entered and just left to wander round. Love the cafe area and how its been utilised.

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
