Planning your group visit
- Unguided visit
Explore the Cathedral at your leisure, taking in the stained glass, small details and stonework at your own pace.
- Guided tours (60 minutes)
Our knowledgeable guides will help you to discover the history of the Cathedral and the stories of the people who have lived and worshipped here over the centuries.
- Private evening tours
If you’re looking for something really special we recommend booking an ‘after hours’ evening tour of the Cathedral. Extend your visit by attending Choral Evensong and hearing our famous choir, a short recital on the Cathedral organ or even some drinks and canapés. We can also include a private roof tour as part of your evening.
- Roof tours
Your visit to Exeter Cathedral isn’t limited to the ground floor! Our guides can take you on a true behind-the-scenes tour of the upper levels of the Cathedral. Climb high above the Nave, walking the length of the famous ceiling. Visit the bellringing chamber and North tower before emerging onto the roof with its stunning views over the city. Due to current covid-19 restrictions, roof tours haven’t yet resumed. Feel free to contact a member of our team and they would be delighted to advice.
- Library and Archive
The Cathedral’s Library and Archives was founded in the 11th century. All the experiences below include an introduction to our holdings and artefact-led discussion around your chosen theme. Feeling creative? Why not ask about our ‘making and doing’ programme that includes brass rubbing, clay gargoyles and creating your own ‘medieval manuscript’
