Following the recent closure of Exeter Cathedral due to coronavirus, we are thrilled to be open and ready to welcome you again.
Masks in the Cathedral
Following the introduction of new laws around wearing masks in shops and new guidance from the Church of England, the Cathedral is strongly advising visitors to wear masks when in the Cathedral.
Exeter Cathedral is one of the oldest and most beautiful Cathedrals in England. Located in the centre of the city, there has been a Cathedral on the present site for nearly one thousand years.
The building itself is a remarkable feat of engineering, design and craftsmanship. It has the longest stretch of unbroken Gothic vaulting in the world, stunning stained glass windows and an intricately carved image screen on the West Front.
The Cathedral is one of Exeter’s top attractions and boasts over 900 years of history. Restoration and conservation work is ongoing, whilst the ancient Library and Archives is still responsible for the care of some of our greatest treasures.
