About Exeter Cathedral, Exeter

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

  • 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

  • Beautiful gothic structure externally. Inside is stunning with several chapels with medieval restored artwork. And you must look up to discover amazing masonry and wood work. It houses one of the uk's oldest working wood and iron astrological clocks. Acoustics are great recommend attending one of the many concerts held. Of course you can worship in this amazing cathedral with a great Christian family at one of it's many services. There is a small charge if you are not worshipping but the charge is little to ensure the upkeep of this beautiful building for another 600 years.

  • On Tuesday 5th December, my wife and I visited Exeter. The guide book said that the Cathedral and Quayside were worth a visit. It pointed out that most noteworthy was the contrast between the redstone buildings surrounding the cathedral yard and the cathedral itself built with very light stone. We arrived at the cathedral yard at about 12:30. My first impression was that I was visiting a garden centre. The beautiful cathedral was surrounded by what can only be described as a shanty town of garden sheds posing as a Christmas market. It was impossible to take any sort of photo of the cathedral without getting a garden shed in the foreground. Even the beautiful facade had an ugly igloo shaped shed in front of it. As for the contrast with the surrounding buildings, forget it. Having managed only one photo we decided to go inside. There we were confronted with a sign telling us that the cathedral was going to be closed to the public at 13:00, it was 12:42. We asked if we could still visit. Yes, but we would have to be quick and we were still charged half price. We managed to get round in 20 minutes, but as we reached the exit I thought I would get some photos looking down the aisle. As I was lining up my camera, an officious looking man confronted me and declared, “the cathedral is now closed for a private function”. “I have paid” I said. I looked at my watch and it was 13:02! “I would like to take this shot” I said. “Just one, then you must leave”, he snapped rudely. “So kind” I retorted sarcastically. Leaving the cathedral I remembered the episode in gospel when Jesus cleansed the temple of traders and moneylenders at the passover. I wonder what Jesus would have thought of Exeter cathedral today and the unchristian behaviour of some of its staff.

  • Love visiting churches and cathedrals, don’t like to be changed for the privilege of a look round and charged extra to take a photo. Lovely organ and a great cathedral
