Daily Walks

Conducted by the City of Hereford Mayor’s Guild of Guides

Daily Walks

We plan to resume Daily Walks on Saturday 9th April 2022 . Daily walks will continue through to the last Saturday in October (Saturday 29th October 2022).
However, to avoid any disappointment, we recommend that you check our website before your visit to confirm Daily Walks are taking place.

Please note that Hereford Cathedral is hosting the Three Choirs Festival this year from Saturday 23rd July through to Sunday 31st July. During this period tickets for our Daily Walks will not be available for sale from the Cathedral Shop. However, some tickets may be available for sale from the Three Choirs Website or from the Three Choirs on-site Ticket Office.

Each walk will be led by a trained volunteer member of the Guild of Guides and is approximately one and a half hours duration. Start time is 11.30am except on Sundays when it is 2.30pm. The walks will commence outside the North Porch (Main Entrance) of the Cathedral.

You will need to purchase a ticket from the Cathedral shop prior to joining the walk (but on Sundays from the guide, not the shop. Cash only, as the Guide cannot accept card payments.) The charge is £5 per adult, £1 for accompanied children aged 6 - 12. 

Please note that we can only allow Assistance Dogs on our walks.

Your guide will be familiar with the most up-to-date public health guidelines and will adhere to these during the walk.

Your guide will be aware of the more crowded areas of the city and will if appropriate, avoid them.

If all is well then please join us to see Hereford’s interesting and historic buildings and other structures, hear about the history of the city through the ages from Saxon times, its role in the Civil War and its famous people. 

You can find information about Hereford Cathedral (the Cathedral Church of St. Mary the Virgin and St. Ethelbert the King) here including information about daily Cathedral Tours.

What Our Customers Say

"I wanted to pass on my sincere thanks to Sydna for her really terrific tour of Hereford on Friday 13 September. Her knowledge of and enthusiasm for Hereford is wonderful and made this one of the best walking tours I have done and I have done many all over the world. My only regret was having only the one full day in the city but thanks to Sydna I have a very good basic understanding of the city. Please do pass on my gratitude."

"On our first visit to your historical city we undertook a guided walk.
The walk was very informative with an excellent guide called Margaret. Both my husband and myself we very impressed with her knowledge and her friendly manner in which she conducted the tour."

What our Customers Say

Good afternoon Anne,
Just a note to say thanks again for the guided walk on Wednesday morning in the sunshire.
We all enjoyed it (doubt if we remember the dates though!) and it was good to meet you.

What our Customers Say

I just wanted to send appreciation for the wonderful guided walk we went on yesterday. Our guide was Jenny and she was everything a good guide should be – engaging, informative and entertaining. She spoke really clearly. She had some great visual aids. And above all, she showed real enthusiasm for her subject and her role – a wonderful ambassador for Hereford!
We were only a small group and our experience was enhanced, it has to be said, by the glorious autumn sunshine. However, I am sure Jenny would have conducted a memorable tour even if it was a large group and the weather was dreadful!
Please pass on our thanks,

What our Customers Say

I just wanted to say how much my husband and I enjoyed our walking tour with Dave last Tuesday.
His knowledge of the area and its intricate history (and patience with us) was admirable and we were only sorry that we two were his only audience that day.
We tried to tip him, but he would take nothing.
He is an excellent member of the guild of guides for Hereford.
