Devon’s capital is a vibrant, modern city with an ancient history, a thriving cultural life, fascinating visitor attractions and a magnificent Gothic cathedral. And, if you‘ve had enough of the city, you can head out on the River Exe to the coast. In other words, the perfect place for a day trip, especially if you're heading to Exeter by train.
