Exeter Cathedral, Exeter

The Exeter Cathedral, formally known as the Cathedral Church of Saint Peter at Exeter, is an Anglican cathedral and the seat of the Bishop of Exeter. It is also the Mother Church of the Diocese. There has been a cathedral on the site for almost 1000 years. The beautiful Gothic structure that stands today dates back to 1270-1340, but the towers and remains of the original Norman Cathedral are even older. The building has the longest stretch of unbroken Gothic vaulting in the world and is also famous for its stunning West Front and Nave.

For an extra couple of pounds added onto your entry fee, you can climb up to the North Tower, the highest point of the Cathedral accessible to tourists. The tower, home to the famous bell named Peter, provides stunning aerial views of the Cathedral as well as the sprawling city - definitely a highlight of any visit to Exeter.

If you’re interested in the history behind the Cathedral, take a trip down to the library and the archives, which are located in the west wing of the Bishop’s Palace. Here you can find various rare and unique original documents, medieval manuscripts and even modern books that cover a wide range of both religious and secular subjects.
