History & Heritage

From the soaring towers of Exeter Cathedral to the depths of Exeter's Underground Passages, Exeter has 2,000 years of history crammed into the compact city centre, surrounded by the Roman city wall, of which around 70% still stands today.

Exeter's Royal Albert Memorial Museum is housed in a stunning Victorian building in the heart of the city, with stunning displays and prestigious loans and exhibitions from national partners. Explore the city's fascinating and sometimes turbulent history on a free Red Coat Guided Tour, running daily throughout the year.
