The Cathedral city of Exeter is the modern vibrant hub for the South West. It is also a host city for the 2014 Rugby World Cup, which is much in evidence. The new Princesshay shopping centre has a wide selection of mainstream shops and restaurants and the older parts of town also have many independent shops and restaurants. Gandy Street is a must. When you tire of shopping Exeter also much in the way of historical interest. The city has Roman origins and you can still see segments of the original city wall. The tunnels under Exeter are fascinating as is the Cathedral. The Cathedral green serves as a scenic centre in the heart of the city. The city has the award winning Royal Albert Memorial Museum which is free to enter and has a wealth of interesting artefacts and a great café.
The quay area has lovely converted warehouses with shops, restaurants and the Haven activity centre where you can hire kayaks or use the climbing wall. You can also hire bikes and travel along the newly completed Exe valley cycle route. Any detailed questions just ask and we’ll point you in the right direction.
