Exeter Virtual Christmas Market

Virtual Christmas Market

  1. Virtual Shopping
    Most of the city's independents also have online shops, so it's even easier to do your Christmas shopping whilst supporting local businesses. On this page, we have put together a list of these retailers, so you can still experience Exeter’s eclectic shopping scene online and tick those Christmas gifts off your list - whether you have a delivery or make use of the many click and collect services available.
  2. Food & Drink
    Whilst we can't enjoy the full experience of dining out during the lockdown, there's no need for this to stop you trying new flavours and enjoying your usual favourites this festive season, as many local eateries are offering takeaway and local delivery instead.
