Wonderful Cathedral, sadly wanted to go on a tour with a guide but day we chose was the Dean's quiet day so no tours running, we weren't informed of this best to check.. Audio guide was good if a little long winded.

We've been meaning to visit Exeter Cathedral for years and finally got around to it recently. We're so glad we went! The Cathedral is absolutely beautiful. You get an audio guide included in the ticket price which was really informative and interesting. We easily spent 1-1.5hours listening to the guide and exploring this magnificent building. The Astronomical Clock is very... More

Impressive cathedral, especially due to the free space around it and its massive width. No time to enter.

I took my kids to the cathedral last year. The museum was shut. The kids were upset and so I said I would show them the cathedral. I was really skint and didn't have any cash and thought that would be a nice substitute. On arrival I was not allowed in to the church unless I paid money. I explained... More
