Hereford Cathedral Library and Archives welcome everyone to explore the cathedral’s diverse collections. Our users include family and house history researchers, scholars tracking down unique sources, and people wanting to explore and develop their Christian faith.

Coronavirus Update

The Reading Room is closed to the public for the time being. All reading group meetings and Life & Learning events due to take place in it up until the end of June have been postponed or cancelled.

You do not need to return books out on loan or renew them until we reopen, even if they are overdue.

Our reprographics service is suspended, but you can purchase images of Mappa Mundi from the online shop.

You can contact the Librarian via email: [email protected]. She will do her best to answer enquiries, but is unable to undertake lengthy research.
