Big LEGO Build


Due to government restrictions, Exeter Cathedral is currently closed to sightseeing visitors. We are delighted to remain open for individual prayer and reflection during lockdown, from Monday to Saturday, 11am-3pm.


The Big LEGO® Build is an exciting project to help members of the project discover and engage with the challenges of maintaining the ‘fabric’ (buildings) at Exeter Cathedral. Thanks to donations from people like you, we have already made progress towards building a 300,000 piece model of the Cathedral from LEGO bricks.

Money raised from the project will help us preserve and conserve the Cathedral and buildings around its precincts for future generations. The final model will be an impressive 3.6m long, 2m wide and over 1m high and everyone is invited to get involved:

How can I get involved?

Come and say hello

Visitors to the Cathedral can add bricks to the model themselves. All we ask is that you donate £1 for every brick you would like to place.

Mondays 11.30-14.30
Tuesdays 10.00-16.00
Wednesdays 09.30-12.30
Thursdays 10.00-16.00

From the 2nd November onwards, the build will also be open Fridays 11.00-14.00
