  • Monday – Wednesday: 10am – 7pm
  • Thursday – Saturday: 10am – 9pm
  • Sunday: 11am – 5pm

There’s no charge and no need to pre-book. Just go along and soak up the atmosphere!

Entrance to the Cathedral is also free of charge during the Exeter Cathedral Christmas Market, so why not make a day (or even a weekend) of it?

This year, they’re excited to welcome the Elf Express from Exmouth Miniature Railway. The Elf Express will be operating on Friday evenings from 5pm, and all day Saturday and Sunday throughout the Exeter Cathedral Christmas Market. No pre-booking is required, just go along and pay on the day.
