As i have lived here for 42 years the Guildhall is worth a visit. it is surrounded by shops and cafes. It is about to get a refit in the next few months with more resturants!!!

The Guildhall is quite stunning ... steeped in history and well worth a visit and there is no charge for entry. Well worth a visit

A free treat which would be easy to miss. Just wander in and find yourself in what we were told is the oldest municipal buildings in Britain still in regular use for civic purposes. The city council still meets in this beautiful 1330 building with panelled walls lined with the coats of arms. Don't miss the wonderful front door!

Really worth a visit, magnificent from the outside. Central and no need to go out of your way to find it.

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.
