Exeter Cathedral possesses the earliest complete set of 50 misericords in the whole of United Kingdom. While you are lost in the tranquility and beauty of the church; do not miss out on the exquisite minstrels' gallery, the astronomical clock and the organ.

Exeter Cathedral Reviews & Ratings

  • One of the most relevant (and beautiful) gothic temples in England. The cathedral itself with the immense towers rising from the middle, all with that nice yard outside (Cathedral Green) looks like it’s out of a fantasy. That lovely square with this impressive building just doesn’t seem real. One of the most beautiful places in southwest England. The inside with the magnificent organ is also dreamlike. Incredibly, really, beautiful. Mandatory visit.

  • Just the most beautiful of Cathedrals. So much history under one roof. You cam choose to wander around taking in its sheer magnificence or take a very informative guided tour. The roof top tour is a must. Staff are friendly and helpful and there are regular activities for the kids to enjoy and still learn. Exeter is my home and the Cathedral has always been my favourite place to visit. My daughter loves it and always wants to pop in whenever we are in town.

  • Beautiful cathedral with lots of interesting things to see. The stained glass windows are awesome as is the ceiling. Went on the tour and the guide was very knowledgeable. Bonus is when you pay the entrance fee you can visit as many times as you like in the following 12 months.

  • Not been inside, so can't comment on that, but the outside is spectacular and the immediate surrounding area is lovely too. Elizabethan or Tudor houses and and nice green area for eating outside. Exeter is generally lovely from what I saw of it.

  • Beautiful cathedral with a lovely surrounding garden and statues. Tried to visit thrice inside but was closed on three instances due to service/ mass and some repair work. Will visit inside someday and update the rating, but the outside is just gorgeous.
