Stayed in Hotel just opposite the cathedral. It is a marvelous building and you can only awe at the craftsmanship of the people who build it. Great for someone who likes architecture or history.

Thank you so much for the five-star review. You were lucky to see the cathedral with its Christmas trees - they are wonderful, aren’t they? All taken down now, unfortunately - until next year. But there is stil lots to see.

If you are in Hereford a stop by the Cathedral is definitely worth it. Take a tour and learn a little about the history of the town and the cathedral. It is one of the most beautiful Cathedrals around.
