Visiting Hereford

I took advantage of an unseasonably warm April day to visit this city near the Welsh border.
The city is a great place to spend an afternoon and I would imagine that it would be a good base to explore the local area, including the Malvern and Cotswold hills.

Possibly, although I saw what I wanted to see first time round. Never say never though!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Attractive cathedral, the Mappa Mundi and Chained Library
  • Cons:I don't have anything bad to say about the place
  • In a nutshell:Definitely worth a look!

    Great start on Hereford, Steve! It's one of the many cities in the UK that I haven't got around to visiting yet! Like you, I might try to fit in a few day trips around the UK over the summer months. Have you considered Lincoln? A nice city, a huge cathedral, a castle and a popular Christmas market. I've been meaning to pop across to the European Christmas markets for years, but never quite found the time. In terms of Belgium, I'd happily recommend Brussels, Brugge or Antwerp - all fascinating cities with great sights and even better beer! :-)

    Hi Steve
    Not a part of the world that I know at all, so thanks for the 'virtual tour' - I particularly love your Mappa Mundi tip!

    Hereford, like many British cities, looks very impressive indeed....
