Places to visit in Exeter

Whilst it is an active city with a lot going on, Exeter is the perfect place to relax and get away from it all. Indulge yourself by relaxing in one of Exeter's many decadent spas or sit back and enjoy a scrumptious cream tea. Visit Exeter’s underground passages which date back to the 14th century and then head above ground to visit the Exeter Royal Albert Memorial Museum to learn about botany, archaeology, geology and fine art. Whatever time of year you visit, you’ll always find plenty of things to do in Exeter, but if you go in spring time you can experience the culinary delights of the Exeter Festival of South West Food and Drink.
