Went to a wedding here, it's a beautiful place, wonderful old stain glass window and gorgeous wooden panelling. Well worth a visit.

it is a nice place to shop around but needs a revamp as the age is catching up with it. also it is located very close to the cathedral so that was quite nice a walk by the green

If you visit Exeter you must visit the historic Guildhall Still used for some council meetings and many Mayoral functions Book a tour with one of the professional and knowledgable Mace Sergeants ....you will not be disappointed

Nothing special when compared to shopping centres / precints in other towns / cities. Some larger places are even undercover.. not this one.

Not a big building but there is plenty to see - my main likes are the silver collection on the first floor and the jail at the back which is a bit of a surprise. It is free to visit and well worth it.

this is much like any other shopping centre but the food stalls are fantastic as there is such a wide variety of global food to try.

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

There was nothing in the guildhall to see it was minimal and bare! Nobody to welcome you in and the staff were just chatting among themselves ignoring all visitors coming through the door.m

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...'
