My Aunt loves pipe organs and this cathedral has a beauty! But the actual cathedral itself is very beautiful and tranquil. Lots of natural light streaming in huge windows and amazing stained glass. This is a massive building but yet, feels pleasantly comfortable. Historically, it...More

The Cathedral is superb. The Cathedral guides with their excellent knowledge, bring it all to life. The Mappa Mundi and Chained Library is not to be missed. So much history - once seen never forgotten.

This is a superb cathedral with lots to see. Lots of excellent stained glass in this beautifully preserved building. Could spend a decent amount of time just wondering around and admiring the history.

Really stunning . Bigger than I thought . Unfortunately unable to take a peek inside as prayers were on going . I would say this was about the only breathtaking thing to see other than a few medevial building left standing - not much else

As Churches go Hereford Cathedral is outstanding in all respects. Entrance is free and Mappa Mundi cost £6 but well worth it for the experience. The Volunteer Guides were very helpful and enthusiastic which made the visit very special.

Just to clarify the situation on behalf of the cathedral - I'm afraid that our office staff are not able to look after dogs while their owners look round the cathedral. This may have been possible in the past but the... More
