From Dean Jonathan

Welcome to Exeter Cathedral, one of the great cathedrals of England, and one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture anywhere.

Exeter Cathedral is the spiritual home for a wide diversity of people, and all who come through the door are warmly welcome. The treasures we hold, even the Cathedral itself, tell the story of our City and Region, and some, such as the Exeter Book, part of UNESCO’s Memory of the World project, tell the story of our language itself. For over 900 years, through worship, memorials and music, Exeter Cathedral has told stories of conquest and revolution, and of deep devotion, prayer and service. We look forward to welcoming you as you take your place within that story.

Very Revd Dr Jonathan Draper, Dean of Exeter
