    A wonderful Gothic cathedral overlooking the ancient market town of Hereford provides a great chance to reflect, meditate and pray. Using public transport to reach here the entry is free though any monetary donation is welcome. The enormous vault, altar and side chapels create a sense of awe and vision of Christian faith and beauty. I often visit and have seen the excellent chained library displaying old priceless Latin volumes and Greek originals. The contoured Mappa Mundi is on display via an entrance at the back of the café. There's a modest book, CD and souvenir shop. The vestry is sometimes open. Various people provide information about the cathedral's history. There are daily tours. Set in pleasant grounds (with Elgar stood propping up a bicycle sculpture) and a open air Café area where you can sit and imbibe refreshments. There has been a presence here for at least a thousand years. A treasure of Christian faith, and important for the liturgy too.

    Great place to visit. Fantastic Georgian house with a lot to see inside. But, for me, the walled gardens are the highlight.
    Very impressed by the knowledge of the volunteers inside the house;
    Will visit again but will spend more time exploring the grounds.

    The Cathedral is free to enter and there is a small charge for going into the Mappa Mundi exhibition. The guides are very informative and helpful and there are plenty of explanations about the map. The map exhibition leads into the chained library where once again there is an informative guide. So many old and ancient texts in this unique library.

    From the minute we entered the Museum we were made to feel welcome by the two ladies on the front desk who were a source of useful information. It took use 2 hours to make our way around the museum and I for one came out knowing a lot more not only about the history of the process of making cider through the ages. If you like crystal glasses they have a mind blowing display. The three engineers were blown away with the equipment through the ages and just how well it was looking today.
    They have a very full range of cider to purchase but we all went for the limited edition cider brandy 25 years old 43% so when you do go keep your fingers crossed its still available.

    We recently visited the historical Weir Garden, whilst visiting friends in Hereford Within the gardens there was an abundance of flowers, shrubs and trees in the orchard. There was also a walled garden and lovely picnic spots along the river, as well as a glass house. Some paths were a little steep or slightly muddy in places

    A team of volunteers attend the gardens on the behalf of the National Trust. This is a great place to visit anytime of year, because the gardens change with the seasons and attract various bird species including robins, sparrows and magpies as well as other animals such as otters, butterfly's, bees and rabbits.

    Well worth visiting to see some of the heritage of the city. Be warned that there are a lot of stairs.
    Lot's of things for children to do , but this doesn't detract from an adult's visit.

    Lovely little tea room attached to the working cheese factory. Shop for cheeses and local products .
    We had a non cheese eater with us and she had ham roll and tea cake . My only gripe is only full cream milk available which I can’t drink although Oat was available too .
    Bought lovely cheeses for home .

    Cycled into Brobury House today by chance - what a find! We strolled around the most naturally beautiful gardens, so tranquil, like going back in time and slowing the world down. I think you can stay there too which would be amazing. Highly recommended and will return.

    An excellent museum, with a large number of water pumps and other equipment to provide our clean water. I particularly enjoyed the working machinery and the exhibition about water treatment, which must be the most important public health measure of all time! The staff were really nice and friendly and there was an additional exhibition of Hereford at war which was well done. The Cafe was a pleasant place for something to eat afterwards.

    Have eaten lunch there many times and have never been disappointed. Visited late summer with a family group for the sunday carvery. Received a lovely welcome and the food was delicious. Ample portions, well cooked and tasty. Thoroughly enjoyed by all 6 people in my party. Service was good and very friendly indeed. Finished off with a lovely stroll around the gardens. Will certainly be back.

    This theatre is a credit to Hereford from which theatres in London and other provincial towns could learn.
    The seating is comfortable and all give good stage visibility.
    The dining and drinking areas - on two floors - are clean.
    Access from its own and nearby car parks is good.
    Above all, the staff - many of whom are voluntary - are helpful and friendly.

    A beautiful garden, well laid out with wildlife friendly plants and flowers. Needs a bit more TLC otherwise nature will reclaim it

    This is a wonderful small museum dedicated to the life of Violette Szabo. This was her holiday house as a child. There are plenty of details and photos of her sadly short but very eventful life. The best part of the experience was being able to speak to the very knowledgeable owner of the museum, Rosemary Rigby, about the brave and inspirational Violette. This is an absolute must if you’re interested in WW2 and its many heroes and heroines. Excellent.

    This fine beast is larger than the one outside Oxford station but you pass it on your way from the Black and White Museum to the railway station.
