Must see in Hereford. there is nothing like it elsewhere. The chained library is also well worth a visit.

It is difficult to make an incredibly out-of-date map interesting, expecially when it won't get you from A to B by the shortest possible route, and may actually get you utterly lost, so Hereford has done its best with a rather unprepossessing artifact.

Worth a visit but quite expensive, only suitable for children if they are interested & old enough to do the quiz & brass rubbings.

Really interesting and informative., well presented and along with the old library, though provoking. Really liked this.

The exhibition before seeing the Mappa Mundi is very informative and helps to explain what you see. Without it would be difficult to work out why Jerusalem is at the centre of the map with Asia at the top, Europe at the bottom left and Africa at the bottom right. The Chained Library is also interesting but spoiled to my mind by relocating it in a modern building.
