Our magnificent Exeter Cathedral

We absolutely love this shot of Exeter Cathedral and its surrounding cobbles!

Fascinating Stepcote Hill 

You'll find fascinating history around every corner in Exeter! Did you know that Stepcote Hill dates back to the Tudor times and is one of our city's oldest surviving streets?

Wonderful wildlife

We think you'll agree that this picture had to make it in our top 10 - who doesn't love seeing gorgeous swan families along Exeter Canal?

Tempting afternoon teas

In Exeter we love a scrumptious afternoon tea, back in the summer we enjoyed one with a glass of fizz at Exeter Golf and Country Club!

Gorgeous views

We're just going to leave this picture here, we wish you were here!

Leaving our paw prints at Gone Wild Festival

We had an incredible time at Nature Valley's Gone Wild Festival with Bear Gyrlls in August, we already can't wait for an action-packed adventure next year!

Glorious Gandy Street

What makes Gandy Street better you say? Gandy Street lit up with colourful lanterns of course.

Fresh seafood

We think you've already noticed, but in Exeter we're big foodies! We love good quality, locally produced food and drink, and here in our city there is no shortage of it. Earlier this year we enjoyed a delicious outdoor lunch at Rockfish along our wonderful Exeter Quay.

Chasing sunsets

There are many amazing places to catch the sunset in Exeter - but we just love this snap of a colourful sunset taken at Haldon Forest!

Festive sights

Visiting our Exeter Cathedral is always worth a visit, but especially during Christmas time! Just look at how wonderfully festive their décor is.
