We always take time to visit a Cathedral. This one is exceptional. We also enjoyed participating in the fascinating Lego project

No real reason why we were going to be charged and no warning. Beautiful exterior didn't really see the inside

The cathedral is a must see. Very grand with ornate stone work inside and out. Although you have to pay to visit the cathedral it is worth the money. Recommend you use the guide brochure to help understand the different parts of the venue and...More

The outside architecture is stunning. You can choose to have a guide but we didn’t. Lots to see and a good gift shop.

Very lovely and impressive architecture however 7.50 each was higher than we were expecting. There was an option to join a tour but we passed and pondered about on our own. Not huge but organ and stain glass beautiful.

Lovely place but you should not have to pay to visit any church. Would much rather make a donation.Apart from that it is a lovely place in a lovely setting in a lovely city.

Stunning architecture inside and out. Right in the city center and a short walk from the gardens. Lots of places to grab a bite or something to drink.

We have lived in exeter for nearly 40 years and this was the first time we visited. A shame really as its a gem. Not cheap to get in, but worth the money. A top tip is to take the guided tour, well worth it

No need to book, but turn up early for a seat! Search online for "Exeter Cathedral midnight mass".

In 2014 we were able to seat everyone who wished to attend the service. Based on last year's experience you shouldn't need to worrying about arriving before 4pm. This year we are also celebrating a late communion service at... More
