1. See Exeter’s Magnificent Cathedral
One of the great cathedrals of England, the Cathedral Church of Saint Peter in Exeter is an absolute must-see. The brightest gem of the city since the twelfth century, this Anglican cathedral is one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture in the country — you don’t need to be big on architecture (or religion) to enjoy its elegant beauty. For a more in-depth experience, consider booking a roof tour — tickets are available on the official website. After the visit, treat yourself to a famous Devon cream tea (and a homemade scone) in a cozy cafe in the cathedral’s shadow!
