Exeter is an ancient city on the River Exe in south-west England. Dating back to the Roman era, the Exeter City Walls surround its centre and Gothic Exeter Cathedral.

Exeter is one of the few cities in the UK to offer free guided walking tours, on which you can discover centuries of fascinating heritage.

With a huge range of independent specialist shops and boutiques offering unique one-of-a-kind items, as well as many well known brands including John Lewis, Cath Kidston and The White Company all located within easy walking distance of each other, Exeter is the perfect shopping destination.
