This is a place we return to each time we go to Exeter. We marvel at the ability of the craftsmen who created this stunning place. The vaulting of the roof of the cathedral is gorgeous, and worth the visit just for that , but there are other gems of Art and Architecture.

Exeter is a lively modern city but with 19,000 students how could it be otherwise? Topsham 4 miles away is definitely worth a visit

Beautiful warm welcoming atmosphere. Lovely cathedral to visit. Shame you have to pay to visit house of God but worth the money. Lots of information available to guide you through visit.

The most beautiful architecture, Interesting history, peaceful energy exuded both inside and out ( If you know what I mean) a place I visited almost everyday of my week long stay and couldn't get enough of.... The Store was closed for "stocktaking" which was a real disappointment. Would have loved to bring back something more than just the snaps I... More

Exeter cathedral is a must visit attraction in Exeter. In fact I would say it's the best atraction in Exeter. If you go, be sure to be accompanied by one of the guides which will greatly increase your enjoyment of the incredible architecture and tell you many of the interesting stories from the cathedral's history.

Exeter Cathedral is the most magnificent building in the area, really beautiful both inside & out. We the residents of Exeter are incredibly lucky to have it. You are in for a treat when you walk through the doors.

Exeter Cathedral is a most beautiful building. The outside has several interesting features and can be fun for children to discover. The interior is incredible and varied. A guide will provide information on the furniture, including the famous "Bishops Chair" which was saved from destruction during the Second World War. Visitors can walk up the stairs to the very top... More

Exeter Cathedral is a magnificent piece of architecture the stone much of which was brought from nearby Beer Caves (also an interesting experience!) has a wonderful soft and warm appearance and you feel drawn by the holiness and reverence, even the restaurant is good with lovely homemade food, this is an attraction you could visit multiple times and never get...
