Hereford Guided Walks

Guided Walks

Let the Hereford Guild of Guides take you around the historic city of Hereford. You will see many of Hereford’s interesting and historic places, buildings and other structures, and hear about the history of the city through the ages from Saxon times, its role in the Civil War and its famous people.

Guided daily walks – 11.30 am Mon – Sat and at 14.30 Sundays. Usually run from 1 April until 31 October, but do check the website.

There is no need to book in advance but you will need to purchase Tickets from the Cathedral Shop prior to joining the walk (and from the Guide on Sundays when the shop is closed) £6 for adults and £1 for accompanied children aged 6-12.

Meet your Guide outside the main entrance to the Cathedral – the North Porch.  Let the trained team show you this amazing historic city.

Also pre-booked themed walks at any time of year, for example:

  • Hauntings & Horrors
  • Elgar in Hereford
  • Alfred Watkins
  • Women in Hereford
  • Building Hereford through the ages

Check website for more info: Cancellation of a walk is exceptional but it is advisable to check with the website before travelling.

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

The Hereford Guild of Guides was formed in 1981 as a non-profit making body to assist tourism in the City. The guides are unpaid volunteers who have made a study of the origins and development of Hereford. They have been accepted as the Mayor’s Official Guides and are proud to wear a badge with the city’s coat-of-arms. 

Each guide prepares his or her own route, varying it to suit the walkers and the weather. Every walk will take in places of particular interest in the centre; and though it is not usual to go into buildings, those of special importance that are open will be pointed out. The guide will tell you about the history of the City and suggest other places you may care to visit on your own.
