Exeter - The Heart of Devon
Located in the Heart of Devon, Exeter is the regional capital for culture, leisure and shopping. Easily accessible by road, rail and air, Exeter is a beautiful city steeped in more than 2,000 years of history. It has a magnificent cathedral, Historic Quayside and fascinating attractions, including its unique Underground Passages. Guided walking tours and coach commentaries of the city operate daily and can be booked in advance and tailored to meet your group’s needs.
Exeter is surprisingly compact and its attractions are all within easy walking distance of each other. Group discounts are available at each attraction, and special tours can be booked for your group. You can also enjoy exclusive shopping in Exeter’s distinctive quarters – head to the award winning multi-million pound Princesshay shopping quarter for designer fashions and top High Street names. Or for independent boutiques, jewellers, art and craft shops, visit the unique Castle Quarter, West Quarter and Historic Quayside.
A brand new coach drop off and parking facility has just opened at Exeter’s Bus & Coach Station, making a visit to Exeter even simpler. Located just a short walk from the city’s main shopping areas and attractions, this is a great place to begin your tour of Exeter.
A year-round calendar of events offers something for everyone, from festivals and theatrical performances to fairs and continental markets. Exeter is also an ideal base from which to explore the rest of the Heart of Devon, including the Jurassic Coast, Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks, the English Riviera and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Mid and East Devon.
