Guided & Audio Tours

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: Exeter Cathedral is currently closed to visitors due to government coronavirus restrictions. We remain open as a place for private prayer and reflection from 11am-2pm Monday-Saturday, and we are continuing public worship in the Cathedral and online. See our service schedule >


One of our experienced guides will lead you through the Cathedral on an enthralling public tour. Discover the characters that have influenced the Cathedral through its long history, hear about the building of this ancient masterpiece and uncover the secrets from its past. Free guided tours usually run several times a day (Monday – Saturday) and are included in your admission fee. Audio tours are available in four languages (English, French, German and Italian) for a small fee.
