Curious About Exeter - Exeter Cathedral

About

Have fun discovering Exeter with two quirky, heritage walks with an optional treasure hunt.
Are you curious about Exeter? Looking for an unusual and quirky activity which gets you out in the fresh air whatever the weather? Take one of our self-guided walks with a treasure hunt theme – looping around the better-known sights, as well as some of the more unusual and quirky ones, which combined make Exeter a charming place to explore!
You'll get everything – detailed directions, maps, clues (with answers in the back!), and interesting snippets about the history of Exeter and the people that have shaped it.
Walk 1: Northenhay Gardens to Exeter Cathedral (1.5 miles)
This walk starts at the intriguing Northernhay Gardens - a delight to explore - before probing the charm of Rougemont Gardens with its city walls. Sweeping past Exeter Castle you'll enter busy and quirky shopping streets, one housing an ancient church, before stumbling across the ruins of bygone almshouses. Next there's a Roman Way and elegant promenades, before arriving at the splendour of Exeter's spectacular Cathedral.
Walk 2: Cathedral to Exeter Quayside 1 mile
Walking beside Cathedral Green will take you back to an earlier, graceful era, before passing an early medieval church, Exeter Cathedral School and a 14th century Bishop's Palace gateway. Now it's downhill all the way, past a Baptist Church, city walls, and the Custom House – before the Exeter quayside expands before you – a river and canal with old-world charm, combined with stylish living, eating and drinking!

Buy in booklet or instant download format (to use on your mobile device or to print at home) and explore in your own time. One booklet is enough for four people of all ages to enjoy.
