Exeter Cathedral Tours

One of the oldest cathedrals in England, the Exeter Cathedral is one of the best examples of Gothic architecture in the world and a highlight of any tour around southwest England. With beautiful stained glass windows and intricate carvings, the cathedral also features the longest stretch of unbroken Gothic vaulting anywhere in the world. While the towers date to the early 13th century, most of the building that stands today was finished around 1400. Inside the cathedral sits an 18-meter tall bishop’s throne made of Devon oak, as well as the earliest complete set of misericords in the United Kingdom and a minstrels’ galley in the nave that is unique among English cathedrals. Visitors should be sure to climb the north tower of the cathedral, which is said to offer the best views in Devon.

In February 2016, the cathedral started a project to build a replica of the building out of Legos and for every pound a visitor donates to the project, they can add a block to the model.

Practical Info

Exeter Cathedral is a few minutes’ walk from Exeter Central train station, while buses H1 and H2 run between Exeter St. David’s train station and the city center. Most local bus services stop at the Exeter bus station, which is a short walk from the cathedral. Free tours are available several times a day, but visitors can also take a paid tour of the roof and north and south towers. Audio guides are also available.
