Daily Walks

Daily Walks - Start from the Cathedral

We plan to resume Daily Walks on Friday 29th March 2024. . Daily walks will continue through to Thursday 31st October 2024. However, to avoid any disappointment, we recommend that you check our website before your visit to confirm Daily Walks are taking place.

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 £6 per adult, £1 for accompanied children aged 6 - 12.

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

Our daily walk can be fully accessible for wheelchair users, however, we recommend booking a bespoke walk to facilitate the best route for your needs. Please see our Booked Walks page and our FAQs Section.

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.
