It was a significant, and brave, decision by the Dean and Chapter to allow a modern stained glass window to be installed in the Cathedral, but it is magnificent. The Special Air Service Memorial window challenges the eye, not least, since there are two panes...More

This is a lovely cathedral, and we spent some time wandering around,, but the real reason we came here was to see the Chained Library and the Mappa Mundi, both of which are historical wonders in themselves. A must-see for any student of history!

Visited on a Saturday afternoon, a wedding was about to start so didn’t really get a good look inside without feeling that we were gate-crashing. The Cathedral houses 10 bells in the tower, they were chiming in a traditional way. The grounds are well maintained,...More

Our main reason for visiting was the 1914-1918 poppies, and what a fantastic setting, An Excellent and calming walk around a magnificent building, the windows are stunning and another cathedral ticked off the list

We visited Hereford Cathedral which was simply beautiful both inside and out. They offer guided tours. It is so peaceful to sit and say a prayer while listening to music. The architecture is amazing and we took our time walking around it. The café has...More

There was free organ recital on when we visited which passed a pleasant hour and the outside spaces are quiet and peaceful places to sit and relax. Some of stained glass both ancient and modern is outstanding.

The Mappa Mundi, the chained library... worth the visit if only to say one has seen these historical treasures, though for me the amazing Norman stone archetecture made the visit worthwhile, it is stunning and the lighting they have deployed makes it a wonder to...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
