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

A beautiful cathedral and well worth visiting if you are visiting Exeter. Lots of individual chapels for quiet prayer and although you have to pay an entrance fee this entitles you to a free guided tour which is very interesting.

We decided to spend the £14 to do the roof top tour, it was worth every penny. I was a little confused when a colourful American lady by the name of Leslie, yes that is spelt correctly, appeared but like all really good enthusiastic volunteers...More

You would certainly need to contact the cathedral to find out. If they cannot help you could - no doubt - provide something suitable yourself and hand it in previously for the celebrant to consecrate

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
