“Beautiful Building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

This Cathedral is really beautiful with a warm ambiance. The stained glass in the main part is superb, but we were not impressed with the new windows in the side chapel, it did not seem in keeping with the rest of the building. There were staff on hand to answer questions and a guided tour is also available. We were pleased and surprised to find there was no admission charge, but donatiions welcomed, however if you wish to see the Mapamundi there is a charge which we felt was a bit excessive. There is a small cafe offering light refreshments.

“Trip to the top”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

We visited Hereford in August & spent a good few hours in the cathedral. A lovely place. We were lucky to get a guided tour up the tower & had smashing views of the surroundings & also down to the cathedral itself.

This was a beautiful Cathedral. No charge to visit but donations welcomed. When we visited, there was a service going on and the choir was spectacular to listen to.

“A magnificent cathedral”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

One of Britain's finest cathedrals, filled with fascination and, of course, the unique mappa mundi and chained library.
