Exeter Quayside

About

Exeter's Historic Quayside is one of the most attractive areas of the city, popular with locals and visitors alike for its fascinating history, interesting architecture and lively pubs and restaurants. Throughout the year events are held around the quay, everything from 10k runs to live music.

The Quayside has been enhanced to provide a fascinating mix of historic and contemporary design. It is the ideal place to browse in antique shops, walk and cycle, take a relaxing boat trip or find something good to eat. A wonderful place for everyone, whether you're looking to have an amble to take in the sights or perhaps something a bit more active, there's facilities on the quay to hire bikes and canoes.

Along the quay is an eclectic mix of cafes, restaurants, pubs and bars where you can enjoy good food, people watch and soak up the lovely atmosphere. Definitely a great place to spend a sunny afternoon.....and if it's not so sunny? Grab a table at one of the places inside and watch the world go by.

For a comprehensive history of the quay be sure to visit the Custom House Visitor Centre.
