History and Heritage
Exeter is home to 'Museum of the Year 2012'. The recently re-opened Royal Albert Memorial Museum (RAMM) is a fantastic (and free!) day out with something for everyone. Exeter Cathedral is a stunning piece of architecture, or try the unique 14th century Underground Passageways . A short stroll from the city centre is the historic quay and to really get to grips with Exeter explore the Roman city walls . Exeter has a rich and varied history. You can experience Tudor life at St Nicholas Priory or discover the city's medieval heritage at Tuckers Hall and 'the house that moved'.
Arts and Culture
The creative heart of the city beats the loudest at the Exeter Phoenix which celebrates visual arts as well as hosting gigs and performances. Spacex is small but perfectly formed, with contemporary art exhibited in a fantastic space. For music, comedy and theatre then look no further than the Exeter Barnfield or Northcott Theatres.
These romantic love stories, filmed in Devon and Cornwall, have enjoyed huge popularity since the first production in 1993, with average viewing figures of 6 million. To date over 70 of these television films have been made, shot in our local countryside with well-known German casts, making this format one of the most popular and long-lasting in German television history.
Michael Morpurgo's children's book, adapted for stage and film has many references to Devon, including Dartmoor, Narracott farm, where Albert (Jeremy Irvine) brings up Joey the horse, is Ditsworthy Warren House, an abandoned cottage a couple of miles southeast of Sheepstor, on the southwest edge of Dartmoor in south Devon.
The nearby local village is Meavy, and just to the north lies Burrator Reservoir, the body of water above which Albie races Joey against the new-fangled motor car of the landlord's son.
The rolling hills and rocky outcrops are Dartmoor National Park, mainly the area around Combestone Tor, Haytor and Ringmoor Down. The wild and mysterious moors have a long history in fiction, most famously as the setting for Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes mystery, Hound of the Baskervilles.
Must See Attractions
