Guided Tours of the Devon and Exeter Institution

About

Discover this delightful heritage haven, and living library in the heart of the city. The Institution occupies historic premises at the middle of Exeter in Cathedral Close. Adapted from what was once the townhouse of the Courtenay family, the library is housed in two elegant Georgian rooms which provide space for research and reading, educational activities, cultural events, and lectures. During Heritage Open Week, we open our doors to the public for free guided tours. There's no need to book, tours normally last around 20 mins, but can be individually tailored to you and your interests. Our tour guides are a dedicated team of trained volunteers, drawn from our membership. They are passionate about sharing their knowledge and enthusiasm for the building, its history, our collections, and the Institution itself.
