Exeter Cathedral

This Saturday morning tour is a great opportunity for family members or friends young and old to share in this historical expedition outlining trials, torture, fame and treasure.

Travel through time as we tell you about the wonderful legacy of Bishop Grandisson on this, his 650 year anniversary, and also the ill-fated Thomas Becket in the 600 year celebration since his death. Our guide will tell the tales of grandeur, turbulence and triumphs: we will open up the special Chapel to show you Grandisson’s final resting place; show you his ring and other precious artefacts; decorate your own knights sword to try and protect Becket from a bloody death. All of this in the unruffled atmosphere of Exeter’s most majestic building. Don’t miss it – book now as spaces are limited for this one off tour!

Children £2.50, Adults £5.
