  1. Exeter Misses You
    In the midst of the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, Exeter misses you but we ask that you please listen to government guidance and don’t visit us at this time. Our priority is the health of our visitors and locals, the people who make our friendly city such a great place to visit. We look forward to the time when travel bans are lifted, local restaurants and visitor attractions can reopen and we can meet again. When that happens we will be here waiting for you, so please #comebacklater
