Red coat tours in Exeter

Due to the new Coronavirus pandemic lock down restrictions the Red Coat Guided Tour service will be suspended from Thursday 5 November 2020 until further notice.

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


Due to the coronavirus pandemic we have had to introduce some further restrictions and booking is essential.

All tours must be booked in advance, and by 4.00pm of the day before, please visit the Corn Exchange website to book your place.

Please note that there will be no tours on 25 & 26 December.

Tours 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.
