We popped in here as the exterior of the building looked so interesting, we wanted to have a look inside.

A small and historic guildhall with lots of fascinating history. The staff are more than happy to tell you about it. It's in the centre of town so easy to get to if you are staying there.

I've always wanted to visit this place during trips to Exeter. This was my last visit to Exeter as job finished so I wanted to make this happen. I was refused entry as I was drinking a covered hot chocolate so returned outside. When I finished it was too late to enter. Very very disappointed.

Does not take long to get around. Best to do on a tour when you can get all the History. We were lucky as we were alone the guard was able to come in and tell us some of the history.

Lovely little place. Not very big but beautiful to look round. Lots of history to look at as it's one of the oldest municipal buildings in the UK.

Beautiful well kept old building full of history. It won't take long to look round as it's only small but definitely worth going to if you're in the centre of Exeter (it's not always open so do check if you're making a special trip)

Thank louisella76
