It's been a while since I've been in the Center of town, but it was good too see that real progress is being made in the Guildhall and I am very much looking forward to the full re-opening of the refurbished shopping area. Hopefully shouldn't be too much longer. 😊

Exeter Guildhall is free to enter. It is very small but also very interesting, if you have fifteen or twenty minutes to spare pop along and have a look.
