About Hereford

Hereford Cathedral

The cathedral building contains examples of fine architecture some dating from Norman times, but it is best known perhaps for the Mappa Mundi and Chained Library, two of Britains greatest treasures.

Church Street

This delightful thoroughfare is crammed with interesting shops including those specialising in maps, music, jewellery and needlecraft.

High Town

The Old House, centrally located, is a fascinating black and white building and is open to visitors - this busy shopping centre is also the venue for markets, fairs and events.

Castle Green

Once the site of a massive Norman keep of a castle at its peak in the thirteenth century, it was totally demolished in the second half of the seventeenth century. It now offers a tranquil place to picnic or stroll close to the centre of the city.
