Exeter Cathedral displays some of the finest Decorated Gothic architecture anywhere in Britain and is surrounded by numerous medieval buildings

The medieval South West

The city of Exeter has deep roots in the Celtic, pre-Roman past. Home of the bishops for the South West since the eleventh century, its medieval past is still very visible today in the town today.

The South West region's historic landscape also offers unrivalled opportunities to explore its archaelogy, landscape and architectural histories, and also the myths and stories associated with particular sites, such as that of Tintagel which was, according to medieval legend, the birthplace of King Arthur.
