Hereford Cathedral

A Cathedral dedicated to the martyred King Ethelbert has stood on this site since Saxon times and is home to a community which has worshipped and worked together here continuously for well over 1200 years. It is a place where the mission of the church to proclaim Christ’s love is central and visitors and pilgrims are especially welcome.

Today’s building contains some of the finest examples of architectural excellence from Norman times up to the present day including the Romanesque Nave, the beautifully restored Shrine of St Thomas of Hereford in the North Transept, the ancient South Transept and the award-winning 20th Century New Library Building. New commissions also include the gilded and painted shrine of St Ethelbert and four stunning stained glass windows dedicated to the life and writings of 17th century cleric and poet Thomas Traherne.

The award-winning Mappa Mundi & Chained Library Exhibition is open all year round and is famous for housing both the spectacular medieval map of the world and the cathedral's unique Chained Library.
