7. Exeter Cathedral
Exeter is a vibrant city and home to one of the ten best places in Devon: the Exeter Cathedral. The cathedral as you can see it today was finished around 1400, although nobody is quite sure about the exact year. This cathedral stands out from other buildings of its kind because it has the longest uninterrupted vaulted ceiling in England. There is also a fascinating astronomical clock and an early set of misericords (small ledges that appear when the seat of a pew is folded back and support churchgoers when they have to stand for an extended period.) Examining the cathedral’s many small details like carvings along the columns will keep you busy for a while if you have an interest in architecture.
