When you’re ready, head into Hereford Cathedral where you’ll not only soak up one of the most beautiful cathedrals in England, but also see the Mappa Mundi, a 13th century depiction of the world created by contemporary monks. It’s widely regarded as a treasure of the medieval world, so make sure you check it out! Whilst there why not also wander round the Chained Library, one of only a handful of its kind in the UK to use the chaining method from the Middle Ages to protect ancient books and manuscripts.

Once you’ve finished soaking up some history, head to the back of the Cathedral and make your way down Castle Street, then take a right down Thomas Way where you’ll find Castle Green, a great spot to watch the swans pass by on the River Wye.

The last stop on your culture-filled morning is the Black and White House museum, bang in the centre of town and a remarkably well-preserved example of the timber-framed Herefordshire architectural style from the 17th century. There’s lots of coffee shops and cafes nearby if you need a top up!
