Visit Exeter, explore and discover some of the beautiful gardens and historic buildings
Although many of Exeter's historical buildings were destroyed and others damaged in the second world war, there are still numerous notable buildings remaining. As well as the wealth of the splendid examples of period architecture on fine display around the Cathedral close, a selection of other important landmarks that makes Exeter rich in history and heritage are shown below.
Rougemont Gardens are set below the castle walls where part of the moat once lay. Although now dry, it is easily identified by the dip in the landscape's
contour. Following a footpath to the higher end of the gardens will eventually lead you to a gate in the wall. Upon passing through this gate you will arrive
in the beautiful gardens of Northernhay. These gardens are believed to be the first designated public gardens to be laid in the country.
The Redcoat Guides offer a walking tours of the city wall. For more details on this walk and other tours available visit the Things to Do in Exeter page!
