The architecture of SFX church seems out of place in Hereford with it sandstone building and Black and White House . It is a richly decorated church which is worth a visit if your on your way to the Cathedral or the river .

Well worth a visit if you are in Hereford. The interior will be like stepping into a Florentine church or anywhere in a big Italian city. For this experience alone, a visit is recommended.

This is a beautiful church built in the 1830s. It holds the hand of Englands oldest martyr, St John Kemble in the reliqury at the top right hand side of the altar. The 14 stations of the cross are duplicates of ones made for the...More

An unusual church architecturally, but a nice place to come for a quiet moment of contemplation or for Mass.

Near Hereford Cathedral, this hidden gem is not registered by most of the public as they walk past it. Best to take in its facade from the opposite side of the street. Very grand and opulent in its surroundings. Peace and tranquility once entering.

This is well worth a visit it was renovated in the 1990s and is spectacular inside. Warm and welcoming. Beautiful stations of the cross. St John Kemble's hand in a repository to the right of the altar

The St. Francis Xavier's is a catholic church with a different architecture and color, looking very bright and joyful. The interior is in the same style like the exterior and creates a very nice light effect. The entrance is on the left side.
