A grand canvas filled with small treasures, the Bishop's Palace garden offers beautiful scenery that feels away and cut off from the city life of Exeter. It sits as an idyllic space, befitting its grand history.
This historical tour (duration c. 90 minutes) offers a journey through time starting from the earliest days of the building of the Medieval Gothic Cathedral, looking around the Lady Chapel from inside AND out, hearing a tale of political murder and ending up in the private gardens of the Bishop of Exeter. Its histories range from Roman times to yesterday, and as the tour develops, you'll not only unlock the secrets of the palace, but find out about the history and makeup of all of Exeter.
Tickets £14. Visitors are advised to bring comfortable footwear. This tour is not suitable for children under 12 years.
