Hereford Cathedral
Home of Mappa Mundi and the Chained Library


Welcome to Hereford Cathedral. This beautiful building is the home of a community which has worshipped and worked together here continuously for well over 1,300 years.

It is a place where the mission of the Church to proclaim Christ’s love is central, and therefore the community has always warmly welcomed visitors. We all hope that you enjoy your visit.

The Very Revd Sarah Brown
