Holidays in Exeter

Exeter is an ancient city built on the banks of the River Exe which combines new architecture with old red sandstone buildings which have been preserved throughout the city. Public art is varied and widespread in town boasting murals, mosaic statues and contemporary sculpture.

Exeter has a fantastic choice of shops, holiday cottages, bars and cafés as well as some fine dining restaurants and high street names. The Cathedral Green might just be the most beautiful place to enjoy a city centre picnic and the historic quayside takes you to the river where water sports are popular.
