Walk 1: Gardens to 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 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!

Accessibility:
Both walks are suitable for buggies and wheelchairs.
