the holiday and travel guide to the UK

Exeter, the city is always busy and always worth the time to visit, a university town, the Northcott Theatre is in the university campus.

The Cathedral is on the site of an 11th century church, with the Cathedral Green a relaxing place to visit and wander, although the coffee shops and restaurants around it are always tempting.

Take one of the walking tours on offer, find out about them at the Exeter tourist information office.

The best shops are around this area, otherwise its the normal range of chains. As the city was badly bombed in WWII parts of the shopping area is fairly new.

Plenty of sporting activities and in the football season watch Exeter City play.

Lots to do, with events nearly every week.

Large shopping centre, now pedestrianised, whilst down by the River Exe and the Exeter Canal old buildings still remain, and you can take a boat trip.
