We had our Lions Den at the Guildhall which is similar to Dragons Den where we hear about the good work carried out by all the charitable organisations and by individuals and give them some money for them to provide this service.

Stacked with history, the Guildhall is a lovely place to spend a while. The silver collection and the paintings are worth a look, but I was particularly fascinated with the mediaeval beams in the ceiling. Absolutely gorgeous.

Handy little shopping mall, with main indoor car parking for disabled very close by. You can then walk through the shopping area and out towards Cathedral for a visit there. On the way back you can find cafes offering usual beverages

Exeter Guildhall is a fascinating medieval building with incredible history. It is beautiful inside, with interesting furniture and lovely pictures. The staff are very knowledgeable. The Guildhall can be hired out for private events; we attended a dinner there and it made a truly memorable venue

Old but a beautiful building. Well kept. It's right in the middle of all the shops. With the guildhall shopping centre next to it. Well worth a visit. I love the pillars to the front of this lovely old historical building.

I went during the red coat guided tour and it was interesting to hear some stories about the guildhall. If you're visiting Exeter, I recommend taking the free tour, which starts in the Exeter Cathedral Lawns. It's very good. The guildhall itself is rather small so it's better to go during the 90 minute tour!
