Exeter - Roof & Tower Tours at Exeter Cathedral

About

Roof Tours : On certain dates during the year 

This fascinating behind-the-scenes tour takes you into the roof void high above the Nave, into the south tower, through the spaces in the north tower and onto the roof to enjoy the best views of Exeter (and beyond).

Tours usually take place on selected Tuesdays and Saturdays from July to September or at other times (for groups of 6 or more) by appointment.

Some tours finish with a very rare opportunity to spend time with the Bell-ringers who will be in action in the Bell Ringing Chamber in the South Tower.

Additional information

The minimum age for any person visiting the roof space is 8. Children aged 8–15yrs must be accompanied by an adult on a 1 to 1 basis.

If you have a heart complaint or breathing difficulties, or have a phobia or dislike associated with confined spaces, darkness, height or flying birds, this may not be for you. The tour could last up to two hours. Bear this in mind when planning an onward journey or paying for your parking. Wear suitable clothes and flat-heeled shoes. There are hundreds of old, narrow and winding steps and it is dusty in places.

Bags may not be taken into the roof and there is nowhere to leave bags in the building.

 

There are no toilet facilities in the roof. Wear suitable clothes and flat-heeled shoes – you will not be allowed into the Roof space if you are wearing flip-flops, sandals or shoes which the guide deems unsuitable. The Guide has final decision as to whether or not to allow you on the tour.

Hard hats are provided and must be worn.

 Access to the top of the North tower may be affected by adverse weather conditions and/or essential maintenance works
