The Herschel Reference Survey (HRS) is a volume limited sample of 323 nearby galaxies. The survey has observed each galaxy at 250, 350 and 500 μ m and will measure the emission from the cold dust in galaxies. The HRS is approximately centred on the Virgo cluster and covers a range of environments. With the wealth of ancillary data in this region the HRS will be a useful legacy for understanding both the local and distant universe. This talk reviews some of the results from the Science Demonstration Phase (SDP) which include the spatial distribution of dust in spiral galaxies, maps of the interstellar medium, observations of the disturbed galaxy NGC 4338 and the dust morphology of the elliptical galaxy M 86.
