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.
