For centuries Exeter has been dominated by its Cathedral with the two massive Norman towers and its West Front decorated with sculptures of kings, saints and angels. Inside this Cathedral are treasures galore: an astronomical clock more than five hundred years old, the Great Organ still in its original position since 1665, the Minstrel's Gallery with carvings of angels playing fourteenth century instruments and a ceiling (Vaulting) which stretches unbroken for one hundred metres. There is a huge medieval window with nineteen full-length figures including Sidwell, the local saint, and a fifteenth century wall painting. Around the north and south wall of the Nave are cushions, on the original stone plinths, which depict the history of the Cathedral, city and country from Roman times to the present day.

Visitors have other needs and these are catered for: there is a shop inside the Cathedral and a restaurant in the cloister area. Guided tours are available and there is special provision for the disabled.
