The beautiful building that is Hereford Cathedral, is the home of a community which has worshipped and worked together continuously for well over 1,300 years.
It is a place where the mission of the Church to proclaim Christ’s love is central, and therefore the community has always warmly welcomed visitors.
Adventurous visitors can climb the 218 steps for some of the finest views of the city and county of Herefordshire, and beyond. Tours include the Lantern Gallery and Ringing Chamber with a set of panoramic interpretation boards at the very top. Tours are limited to good weather and may not be suitable for all visitors. Children must be accompanied by an adult and it is recommend that the climb is only suitable for children aged 8 or over.
Certificates are issued to all who manage the climb to the top!
