Roof Tours

The two towers of the Norman Cathedral were retained when the Cathedral was rebuilt between 1270 and c.1350. 

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 take place on selected Tuesdays and Saturdays from July to September 2017.

Ticket information

£12.50 (adults), £10 (seniors/students), £5 (children aged 8-18). All tickets include admission to the Cathedral.

Book online or telephone 01392 285983 (Monday to Friday)

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.
