This is a must for history buffs. The guildhall gives you an insight into the way the city of Exeter did its day to day business. Beautifull carvings and a truly inspirational building that leaves you breathless with knowledge

If you like Primark, Sainsburys and Mcdonalds look no further. The only thing that stopped me from giving it 1 star was the fact that if you walk across from the shopping center into the other covered section (Harlequins) there is an amazing cafe called 'Taste...'

Great performance, comfy seats but poor parking and cheap wine served at great expense. £19.50 for 4 glasses!

We went to a wedding on Dec. 23 at the Guildhall, and it was lovely. The building is stunning, and after the reception they gave an informative guided tour. The bride and groom and the guests were all delighted with the entire thing.

Small but perfectly formed. Just walking through you can feel the history oozing throughout. You will only be in there for a short time but it is worth the view.

The street food market in the Guildhall is great. Amazing food and atmosphere in a amazing setting. I would highly recommend a day out. Think it on a Friday, Saturday & Sunday.
