Exeter Cathedral Chapter House and Cafe

Hello

Thanks for visiting.

After a good look round the beautiful Exeter Cathedral, a cup of tea was in order but let's just visit The Chapter House next to the Refectory as an exhibition of face paintings was being displayed by the Exeter based charity Magic Carpet who provide opportunities to improve self confidence through performing arts for those challenged by health and social circumstances. What an excellent idea.

The Chapter House itself was stunning. The Gothic room had a wonderful ceiling and the modern Testament Sculptures by Kenneth Carter were extraordinary.



Apologies for the quality of the photos.



On to the Refectory.



Yum! We'll put our feet up here until the next time.

Cheerio
