Exeter, the regional capital for culture, leisure and shopping, is a vibrant city brimming with character and steeped in ancient history. With a history that dates back to before the arrival of the Romans, Exeter today offers visitors a delightful mix of high quality attractions, restaurants and shops in a setting of architectural splendour.
Begin your visit at Exeter's Tourist Information Centre, where our friendly and helpful staff will provide you with all the information you will need. Exeter's compact size makes exploring easy. Most attractions and museums within Exeter are free, making a day visit or short break, great value for money.
Include in your visit the city's magnificent Gothic Cathedral or stroll along Exeter's Historic Quayside, home to the excellent Quay House Visitor Centre and once the setting for a thriving woollen cloth trade, which made Exeter the fifth richest city in Britain. Today Exeter's Historic Quayside is a thriving riverside resort with interesting shops, cafes and pubs.
Explore the Royal Albert Memorial Museum, which houses exquisite displays and exhibitions, or join a FREE Red Coat Guided Tour and discover Exeter's hidden treasures on foot. If you feel more adventurous, then why not embark on a self-guided heritage trail through the city.
If this isn't enough, then Exeter boasts over 700 shops, of which a large number are independent stores offering a unique shopping experience. Exeter also provides a dining experience to rival the best in Europe, with fresh, locally produced food prepared with flair and imagination at the city's many restaurants, cafes, tearooms and pubs.
Exeter can be enjoyed at any time of year, with a year-round programme of events and festivals catering for all interests, ages and budgets, from open air concerts and theatre, to craft markets, Heritage Open Days and Christmas fairs.
Exeter is easily accessible by air, road and rail, and once here, the city makes a great base from which to explore the Jurassic Coast, the National Parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor and numerous historic properties and gardens.
