Exeter Quayside, Exeter, Devon
Head away from the busy city streets and take a short stroll down to Exeter Quayside for an altogether more relaxed air; down by the river people just happily go about their own things - strolling with the dog, meeting up with friends for a drink at one of the bars or cafes, having a paddle in a kayak or on a stand-up paddle board, browsing the independent shops; it's a nice place to be, especially when the sun is shining.
If you fancy a paddle yourselves, hire the gear from Saddles and Paddles, or opt for bikes for a cycle along the estuary to the Double Locks pub or Topsham; spend time as a family tenpin bowling, take a boat trip along the historic ship canal with Exeter Cruises, or book a funfilled session at Clip n Climb. If you want to know more about the Quayside and its history go to the Custom House Visitor Centre; for refreshments try Mango's, On The Waterfront, or Exeter's biggest fish restaurant, The Rockfish.
