Hereford Cathedral

This beautiful building is the home of a community which has worshipped together here continuously for 1,300 years. It is first and foremost a Christian church where the people of Hereford and countless pilgrims have come, and still come, to offer worship and thanks to God. With this central mission to proclaim Christ’s love, it has therefore always welcomed visitors.

We look forward to welcoming you!
