The present building of Exeter Cathedral was complete in 1400. Since then, it has survived a lot of atrocities, especially during the Dissolution of the Monasteries. Back in the 1940s, the Cathedral also survived a direct bombing during an air raid. But that is not all that makes this place one of the most visited cathedrals of United Kingdom. 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. While you are at Exeter do not miss the Sunday Evening mass, which is accompanied by some of the best choirs in the city, marking a perfect end to your Sunday Evening!

Exeter Cathedral, Exeter Reviews - Write a Review

  • I found the staff helpful. Told me I need not pay the entrance fee if I just wanted to say my short prayers. Respect begets respect.

  • Quite an impressive cathedral. If you go there and participate in a service you won't get charged for admission. Especially the evensong is nice because you get to enjoy the historic organ as well as a choir - experiencing the acoustic of the cathedral is quite nice.

  • Stunningly beautiful building. We were there to see the wonderful, mega talanted Wildwood Kin, but it is worth a vist just on its own merits.

  • Doesn't come much better than Exeter Cathedral. Great setting, free admission, memorial to John Graves Simcoe. Great condition. Coffee room and souvenir shop.

  • A wonderful building. The audio tour brings this place to life in a way that information boards never can.
