Red coat tours in Exeter

Operating throughout the year except Christmas Day and Boxing Day, our free guided walking tours are the perfect way to explore Exeter.

Daily from until 31 October 2021. Please see our new timetable and remember that you must book in advance.

All tours (apart from the Historic Quayside tour) depart from the Hooker Statue on Cathedral Green.

Regrettably, dogs (except Guide dogs) are not permitted on the tours and children must be accompanied by an adult. The tours may contain steps, slopes and steep or rough ground, however the Red Coat Guides will do all they can to make tours accessible to all so please speak to your guide before the tour about the suitability for your individual needs.
