An amazingly beautiful cathedral, inside and out. A haven from the hustle and bustle of city life, and an awe-inspiring vault of history stretching back a thousand years. Locals and worshippers can get in for free, but I've joined the"Friends of Exeter Cathedral" in order to support the upkeep of this wonderful building.
Superlative cathedral with much to admire. A quiet sanctuary from the city with refreshments for the body, rather than the soul, close by. Lucky to catch it draped in a thick layer of fairy dust.
I visited the Cathedral last Spring as part of a study regarding musical instrumentation during the 1500s. The staff were very accommodating, thorough and knowledgeable. I was able to use all of the information to achieve a top mark, was able to take photos, write notes and add some solid primary references due to the staff's knowledge, understanding and patience. The setting is simply beautiful, the building is simply fascinating, a true mark upon history, located in a wonderful setting. The interior speaks for itself, a flurry of historical embrace situated within a reverberated hall of mass historical value. As an academic and a resident of Exeter, I really could not rate the historical values of the Cathedral highly enough. If you get a chance to visit, I would recommend it.
Love this place so much. I don''t think that you can find a more peaceful place in Devon for a spot of contemplation. It is cared for with heart by the staff and council that are responsible for it. From the outside grounds to the outside mortar. A real historic site that deserves to be preserved. The poor high street paid the price for the bombings in Exeter trying to get to this amazing site. Glad they missed.
I visited this stunning cathedral on a beautiful spring day. The outside and inside are truly stunning and it is a must see on your visit to Exeter. There are many shops and restaurants near it and it is on a pedestrian side of the city. Well worth it.
