Elegant and cosmopolitan, Exeter is a modestly-sized city on Devon’s south coast. It’s a place that has perfected its blend of old and new, with sleek contemporary retail districts punctuating medieval cobbled streets, while the city’s Quayside only adds to the charm. The gothic Exeter Cathedral, with its dramatic vaulted ceiling, is a must-see no matter what brings you to town, as is the Royal Albert Memorial Museum.
