An inspiring and hugely interesting cathedral. Wonderful glass and architecture, together with side chapels, the crypt and the Shrine all make for a wonderful place to visit, and of course, to have the opportunity to share in the worship.

Visited when unexpectedly staying in Hereford, and really glad I did. Highlights are stained glass windows particularly those by Tom Denny and the ones in the Stanbury Chapel the Corona - ring of lights in the shape of the crown of thorns The St John's walk; carved wooden roof

I live near, and love, Salisbury cathedral so it was interesting to see some of the local history behind this magnificent building.

Had a great walk around the cathedral. There is plenty to see; tombs, catacombs, stained glass etc. There is also a stone mason outside chipping away most days. It is all clearly signposted with details and explanations of key attractions. The walk up the tower is well worth doing but you have to go in a party with a guide... More
