A tour of the Fine Art of Exeter Cathedral


Exeter Cathedral are offering members of TAS Exeter a private tour of the Cathedral’s “Illustrated Architecture”, which will follow much the same pattern as that in 2017. This proved very popular with so much art of high quality right on our doorstep. Three specialists will lead parties of no more than ten in number, to look at the Medieval Stained Glass, Notable Tombs and Monuments and The Library in turn. Each tour will last approximately one hour with a break for coffee and a break for lunch. Of course three hours hardly does justice to the wealth of architectural features in the cathedral but will surely whet your appetite for further exploration, in due course. Although The Cathedral Café, situated in The Cloisters, is open Monday to Saturday for breakfast (served from 09.30), morning coffee and handmade cakes, light lunches and afternoon tea, our refreshments will be provided in the Chapter House. The total number will be limited to 30.


The Programme:

•                      09.50 Arrival Time, meet in the Chapter House, booked all day for us, and best approached by coming down the Nave to the South Transept, where there is a small door in the wall.

•                      10.00 1st Tour

•                      11.00 Break for Coffee/Tea in the Chapter House and Convenience Break

•                      11.30 2nd Tour

•                      12.30 Break for lunch, in the Chapter House, please note the break for lunch might not be quite long enough to eat in the town.

•                      13.45 3rd Tour

•                      15.00 Farewells..

Cost - £21 for the whole day, but not including lunch, which will cost a further £7.95  It does, of course, include your entry to the cathedral.
