Beautiful exterior well-set in adjoining grounds so you can appreciate it from various angles. A very impressive grand interior, belying the more sedate exterior. The arches and carvings are superb and the stained glass as rich in colour and detail as you could expect. At the far end of the nave are other chapels with breathtaking windows and altar dressings.... More

An impressive cathedral provides a quiet place to escape the city centre. The crypt is interesting and from the cathedral you can access the chained library visitor centre.

An absolute must for visitors. Enough to view for al least two hours There is a need for some work to be done but the overall experience is well worth it.

Had a tour with Sylvia - a must do and only £4. Brings the place to life. Could have spent much longer but only paid for 2 hours parking. Lots to see and the 3 choirs concerts sound amazing

Strolled round this wonderful building and had the bonus of a choir and orchestra practicing Dvorak which was so ethereal and uplifting. Fantastic. There are some fantastic stained glass windows. Much larger than it looks from the outside.

I went to school at Hereford Cathedral which is just next door and attended the Cathedral pretty much every morning during term time. Looking back now I really miss it and the services that I attended in this Cathedral.

Rather nice building in a city centre location. Would make a great conversion into apartments. Close to other amenities and has an on site cafe.

Well set up and interesting. Unique history. Lovely café and visitor centre too. Best enjoyed outside of busy season to get plenty of time to view each exhibit.
