A beautiful cathedral and well worth visiting if you are visiting Exeter. Lots of individual chapels for quiet prayer and although you have to pay an entrance fee this entitles you to a free guided tour which is very interesting.

We decided to spend the £14 to do the roof top tour, it was worth every penny. I was a little confused when a colourful American lady by the name of Leslie, yes that is spelt correctly, appeared but like all really good enthusiastic volunteers...More

When a church want you to pay around 7.50 to enter, for me this is incomprehensible . A church is for praying and feeling secure. Not funding a well funded organisation. A 1 or 2 would’ve okay , I don’t believe Jesus would ask you...More

Take advantage of the free guided tour, about one hour. Our guide was informative without endless dates etc. which tend to go in one ear and out the other after a while!

A beautiful cathedral with a fantastic vaulted ceiling. Lovely chapels and stained glass windows. Would have liked to climb the tower but this is only available on certain days. Quite expensive to enter but worth the fee.

No need to book, but turn up early for a seat! Search online for "Exeter Cathedral midnight mass".

In 2014 we were able to seat everyone who wished to attend the service. Based on last year's experience you shouldn't need to worrying about arriving before 4pm. This year we are also celebrating a late communion service at... More
