Churches tell a story, many stories – of families, of political intrigue and social change, of architecture, and changes in belief.
Herefordshire Churches Tourism Group is a network of some of the best churches and chapels in the county that have dominated the landscape and life of communities for more than a thousand years.
What will you find when you enter the door?
A source of fascination, awe, or a deep sense of peace?
Here people have come and still come, generation on generation, seeking the place of their ancestors or solace for the present.
Our churches still play a significant part in the life of our communities. Some act as community centres with modern facilities, others have developed their churchyards to attract wild life, all serve as living monuments to our heritage and history.
Visiting our churches can enhance your appreciation and enjoyment of Herefordshire.
