Exeter Cathedral, the Cathedral Church of Saint Peter at Exeter, is an Anglican cathedral in south west England. The present building was completed by about 1400, but the Cathedral was founded several centuries earlier, in 1050.

The structure as it stands today is known for a number of architectural highlights including the longest uninterrupted vaulted ceiling in England, and a magnificent pipe organ. The organ was built for the Cathedral by John Loosemore in 1665, and underwent several changes during the next two centuries. Its exceptional case has, however, survived to this day.
