Walking back from the quays to the city centre, we detoured to visit the simply stunning relic that is the Medieval Exe Bridge. Sadly now effectively a traffic island, can easily be reached through the under pass or by walking down Fore Street. Excellent that...More

A great opportunity to see a beautiful old and not quite ruined Roman bridge. Our guide mentioned that there are often homeless people living under there but we saw none and enjoyed walking the length of the bridge.

Lots of rubbish left lying around the place Waste of time as nothing really to see. Such a shame as I believe this may have been the original bridge over the river Exe.

From a historic point of view the bridge is interesting. The city could make much more of this area if it chose to do so. The area is surrounded by very busy roads. Not really worth a stop and you would be the only one...More

Incredible to see, firstly for the architecture and the structure built all those years ago, but also to see where the river used to flow! There is a small chapel/church at one end and the bridge actually goes nowhere these days, however in summer it's...More
