Location information for Exeter

What makes the city of Exeter an interesting holiday destination is the fact that it has managed to bring together the old and the new through its array of tourist attractions. The city's population is mostly composed of students so you can expect a number of modern entertainment options waiting for you. Arranging for cheap car hire in Exeter is more practical considering that the city is surrounded by lovely countryside that you must also explore during your stay.

In the city centre, you will find a number of attractions that will attract your interest. Because the area is quite compact, you will not need your car rental to get around. A leisurely walk along the city's streets will bring you to noteworthy landmarks such as the St Peter's Cathedral. This church was built where a 7th century monastery once stood. The former Benedictine Priory is also worth visiting. This 900-year-old Elizabethan building was originally used as a guesthouse for monks.

While you're in the city, you shouldn't miss a chance to walk along its underground tunnels that run under the High Street. These tunnels were once used to bring water into the city and are now open to the public. You might also want to explore the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Queen Street for more diverse collections of historical artefacts.

When it comes to shopping opportunities, you'll never run out of options in Exeter. Its Guildhall Shopping Centre houses a wide range of specialty and retail stores that sell practically every type of merchandise. The Quayside is also a must-visit with its outdoor cafes, restaurants and shops that are built from 17th -18th century warehouses.

Take your cheap car hire in Exeter after you have explored the whole city and extend your holiday to day trips to the countryside. Popular destinations include the Port of Topsham, which features a number of Dutch Houses, and the Exmoor National Park.
