Overview

Hereford Cathedral & Mappa Mundi

Hereford, Herefordshire

Built on a place of worship used since Saxon times, Hereford Cathedral contains some of the finest examples of architecture from Norman times to the present day, including the 13th century Shrine of St. Thomas of Hereford, the recently restored 14th century Lady Chapel and the award-winning 20th century New Library Building.

The award-winning Mappa Mundi & Chained Library Exhibition houses the spectacular medieval map of the world and the Cathedral’s unique Chained Library, telling the stories of these national treasures through models, artefacts and changing exhibitions and displays.

Other activities include concerts, recitals, The Three Choirs Festival (in August every third year), exhibitions, events and a working stonemasons yard where skilled craftsmen use traditional methods to restore this ancient and beautiful cathedral.
