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.

Covid safety precautions

Face coverings in the Cathedral
Following the introduction of laws around wearing face coverings in places of worship, and guidance from the Church of England, it is a legal requirement that members of the congregation at all services, visitors, volunteers, and staff, wear face coverings in the Cathedral. This helps us keep one another safe. Some people are exempt from this requirement; please be sensitive to these: not all needs that exempt people are visible. Those who are leading, preaching, cantoring, reading, and interceding at public worship – who are well distanced from the congregation – need not wear face coverings whilst exercising these ministries.

Important safety guidelines
If you are planning to visit the Cathedral, please be aware of the following measures to help ensure a safe environment:

  • You will be asked to sanitise your hands as you enter the Cathedral.
  • You are legally required to wear face coverings.
  • As you will understand, we cannot open our WCs.
