Exeter Links - Tourism and Attractions Links

(Exeter, Devon, England, UK)

Famed for its grand cathedral and historic Roman walls, the city of Exeter resides within the county of Devon, where it functions as the county town and home of the council. The city grew up on the banks of the River Exe and was actually one of the earliest of all the Roman settlements based within south-western England.

There is certainly plenty in the way of culture for visitors in Exeter, with the principal attractions falling into this category including the Royal Albert Memorial Museum and the Historic Quayside, where the Custom House dates back to the 17th century and is currently being used by the city's very own archaeological services. Tourists may also like to take a tour of Exeter's unusual medieval passageways, which head underground and last approximately one hour in duration.

For families, exploration of the Rougemont Castle will form an enjoyable part of a day out, while just outside of the city, the Crealy Great Adventure Park is packed with fun rides and will easily fill an entire day, even with an early start. Theatres, football and rugby clubs, a racecourse, beautiful churches and a very old Guildhall are just a few of the further distractions available in Devon's number one city.
