Exeter

Exeter's 2,000 year history is all yours to explore.

  • City

    • Take advantage of the many walking tour routes around the city, either with a guide or with a solo trek.

    • Be sure to take in Exeter Cathedral, which dates from the 12th century, or nearby St Nicholas Priory, with its unique collection of rare Elizabethan items.

    • A 15-minute walk from the city centre lies Exeter's historic Quayside; a picturesque area filled with fascinating architecture, boat trips, and even climbing!

    • For a taste of the more unusual, visit the nearby West Quarter. It's home to many unusual attractions including an Egyptian catacomb, Tudor homes and a Benedictine Priory.

  • Dining & Shopping

    • A great place to shop in the High Street. This is a sprawling, 1-mile street with a wealth of high street favourites as well as book shops, music shops, and independent stores selling handmade goods.

    • The nearby Guildhall Shopping Centre is also packed with top high street names.

    • To find local produce, visit one of the city centre markets, which take place daily.

    • For an Exeter dining experience, the city is filled with quaint Tudor buildings, transformed into modern cafes and coffee shops without losing their appearance or historic character.

    • Tea on the Green, in the city centre, is a popular haunt for tourists and locals alike, where you can enjoy an afternoon tea while watching the world go by.

  • Did you know?

    • The city is infamous for being the last place in the UK where a woman was tried and executed for witchcraft - the exact spot of Alice Molland's execution is now a city centre bar called Timepiece.

    • Exeter's Guildhall is the oldest civic building in Britain and has been in regular use since 1468.

    • Exeter was first occupied in 250 BC.
