Hereford and the local area
Hereford Cathedral (With SAS Memorial)
Hereford Cathedral is a stunning medieval 14th century building that sits right in the heart of the city. It has beautiful architecture and stained-glass windows, as well as a little coffee shop where you can enjoy refreshments. There is also an important artwork featured in the cathedral, in the form of a sculpture and stained-glass window, to mark the 75th anniversary of the SAS.
Hereford museum and art gallery
A beautifully old building featuring art by locally born artists, this museum and gallery has been open since 1847. In 2005, it became the first museum in the UK to invest in the Talking Tactile Tablet for those who experience difficulty in seeing. The tablet was co-developed by the Hereford based Royal National College for the Blind, alongside a U.S. software company.
National Trust - The weir garden
The Weir Garden is a spectacular riverside garden with acres of land, stunning scenery, flowers and wildlife – the perfect location for an afternoon trip or summertime picnic. Open all year round, it is a wonderful day out and has lots of interesting features to see on your way around.
