School and Group Visits

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 imposing towers of today’s Cathedral date from the early 12th century. They form the majority of what remains of the Norman Cathedral which was replaced from 1270 -1340 by the beautiful Gothic building we see today with its famous West Front and elegant Nave. It is a rich resource of art, craft, symbolism and architectural detail. The Cathedral is, as it always has been, the jewel in the heritage crown of the county of Devon, as well as the seat of the Bishop and the Mother Church of the Diocese.

We can offer you a range of tours, workshops, trails or quiz booklets for your visit. We also plan debates and special services too. The Education Department is keen to make the day fit your curriculum requirements, so ask us about making the sessions bespoke to your needs. Examples of our themed tours include; art in the cathedral, pilgrimage, roof or tower tours.

“Thank you very much for yesterday. The students all really enjoyed it and it was great that they managed to do and learn so much. The workshops had great pace and variety and I think that’s why I feel so tired today!”
