Exeter Cathedral is an Anglican cathedral, and the seat of the Bishop of Exeter, in the city of Exeter, Devon in South West England. It is one of the great cathedrals of England, and one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture anywhere.

November is a busy time in the Cathedral, as we make preparations for the arrival of the Exeter Cathedral Christmas Market, and prepare to welcome Jonathan Greener as our new Dean.

Whether you come here as a pilgrim, tourist, Christmas shopper or curious visitor, we welcome you warmly.

Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable but what made it special was his passion and love of the building and its history.
