Sightseeing around Exeter

The walking tours vary according to which part of Exeter’s history you want to explore. For example, between May and September you can learn about rebellions the city has experienced in its chequered past, together with how the plague affected inhabitants and tales of murder, hanging and burning visiting places of punishment and conflict.
You can explore the tunnels from medieval times that are below the streets in the city which are a fascination for both tourists and locals.
