Exeter Tourist Guide

Exeter is renowned as one of the most beautiful cities in the UK. Located in the southwest of England and on the beautiful River Exe in Devonshire, it is a city that is bursting with character and history and one that you will not regret visiting.


As well as this history, there are a wide range of other attractions on offer too including a bustling shopping centre and the surrounding Devon countryside. Whilst there is more than enough things to do in Exeter for you to never leave the city, it also serves as a brilliant base to explore the wider Devon countryside.

Things To Do In Exeter

Exeter may be a historical city, but that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have a wide range of things to do. Of course, the gothic cathedral is a big draw and no visit to Exeter should be without a visit to this wonderful old building. For history buffs who want to delve more into the past, the Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery is well worth a visit too. For something historical but a touch more exciting (especially if you have children), a visit to the underground passages beneath the city is a good idea. Here you can explore these underground pathways and hear tales of wars and sieges. There are lots of other things to do in Exeter, many of which you will find in any city such as cinemas and leisure attractions, all of which provide great value for money entertainment.

Shopping in Exeter

Exeter is the premier shopping destination in this part of Devon and offers a memorable shopping experience. At the heart of the city you will find the Princesshay Quarter where you will find some of the best and brightest high street names as well as a great choice of cafes and restaurants. The nearby Cathedral Quarter is worth a look too, this being the location of a range of buzzing and vibrant independent shops all centered around the green. The best way to sample the delights of shopping in Exeter is to explore it yourself. Whether you’re in the heart of the city centre or in the Castle Quarter, West Quarter or down by the Quayside, you’re never too far from some wonderful retailers.

Eating And Drinking In Exeter

As you may suspect, this old city is home to some amazing pubs, some going back hundreds of years. Real ale and cider lovers will particularly be impressed with what is on offer. Exeter is a modern city too though and you’ll find plenty of chic bars and restaurants too where you can wine and dine in style.
