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

  • I visited the Cathedral last Spring as part of a study regarding musical instrumentation during the 1500s. The staff were very accommodating, thorough and knowledgeable. I was able to use all of the information to achieve a top mark, was able to take photos, write notes and add some solid primary references due to the staff's knowledge, understanding and patience. The setting is simply beautiful, the building is simply fascinating, a true mark upon history, located in a wonderful setting. The interior speaks for itself, a flurry of historical embrace situated within a reverberated hall of mass historical value. As an academic and a resident of Exeter, I really could not rate the historical values of the Cathedral highly enough. If you get a chance to visit, I would recommend it.

  • A beautiful building, situated on some beautiful grounds. The inside is stunning and well worth the price of admission. The staff there are very knowledgeable and seemed very happy to teach.

  • One of the most beautiful places in England. Everything is so nice and beautiful. We managed to be there on Easter Sunday, and you can't explain the beauty and tranquillity in this place. Truly place to visit if you're staying in Exeter or near it.

  • The cathedral is a must go place when you're in Exeter. It is unusual because it is largely unaltered since it was completed in 1400 in the English decorated style. Outside there is an amazing west front plus two tall Norman towers (remains from the original church) on each side of the nave. Inside it is a forest of soaring columns supporting a mass of spectacular medieval ribbed vaulting and large windows fill the whole building with light. Unlike many other cathedrals it is not cluttered with shrines and 'add-ons' so it feels airy and spacious. There is also a rare astronomical clock in one of the transepts which is worth looking at.

  • Impressive architecture and scale, located in a scenic clearing with historic buildings around it. I like to buy lunch in town and the sit and eat lunch while looking at the cathedral and the surrounding green. The Christmas market is located on the Cathedral green in late November and December, which is always very busy, but good fun
