Many thanks for visiting.
Apart from a jolly good Cathedral, Exeter offers plenty of places to visit and things to do especially for those that enjoy the water. There's the River Exe, the Exeter Ship Canal and the new flood defence scheme which is in the process of being completed to improve the risk of flooding for more than 3,000 homes and businesses at a cost of £32 million.
The Quay where the river and ship canal can be found, is a beautiful spot with some interesting bridges including a medieval one, customs house, covered market area and lots of sport activities.
Having played an important part since the Roman times, the arrival of the railway in the 1840s brought an end to the Quay's industrial days but there are still hints of the old times like the old railway turntable. Nowadays it's a glorious place to walk and enjoy watching the rowing, dragon boats or stop at a café.
