You can picnic on the grass or enjoy one of the many eating places overlooking the Cathedral. The Cathedral itself is an oasis of peace and beauty, a testament to... More

we attended sung Evensong and it was a wonderful experience. It was as if we had been transported back to medieval times and joking the monks for their service. The singing was beautiful and the whole service was spiritually uplifting .

Exeter Cathedral is the most beautiful building, in a glorious setting and surrounded by lovely old houses. It is a wonderful place to visit and the services there are truly memorable, with fantastic music. An absolute must to go and see, and with a really good value shop selling great mementoes

The most impressive entry point is... More

This is a lovely cathedral, but feel it it is wrong to charge an entry fee as they now do. Churches should be free to visit with voluntary contributions if people wish to help.

Lovely shop and great guided tour. Very knowledgeable female guide. Did not like the outside toilet which required a code to access. Not user friendly and small facility for such a wonderful attraction.

We very much enjoyed the cathedral. It is just beautiful and we met a tour guide/volunteer who was so knowledgable and loved sharing his knowledge with us. Nice gift shop as well.
