Exeter's city centre is small and a treat to explore on foot while on holidays in Exeter. Wander the city walls, stop off at the cathedral, tour a castle and peek down Parliament Street, the narrowest street in the world.
Exeter Cathedral: This Gothic masterpiece is Exeter's biggest attraction. It has a gorgeous interior and the Cathedral Green is a great place to hang out on a warm summer evening.
Underground tours: As a medieval city, Exeter has a whole network of underground passages. Join a tour for less than a fiver and tour the old water system! Not for those who are claustrophobic!
Parliament Street: There's not too much to see here except that it's a ridiculously narrow street, supposedly the narrowest in the world. Great for a photo op!
