UK & Ireland
It's such an underrated city. There's loads to do! You have the coast, surf, fabulous beaches, a coastal path, free ferry to Cornwall, Dartmoor, bars, superb nightlife, remote, fun, hip, and happening. Apart from a chaotic traffic system and poor shopping,
is the bees knees.
I grew up in
. It's a mostly pretty town. The Cathedral is lovely, the Quay is worth a visit and the V&A museum is good for a couple of hours. Ignore the comment about the drunks; it's not true. The nightlife is great and all you ever see are good natured students. The shops are better than you'd expect for a city of 100,000 as it's the regional hub. It's otherwise pretty small, and if you're in the region don't spend more than a day or two here - the countryside around is the main draw.
Don’t even think about coming to
. The nightlife is rubbish -- all the clubs are filled with little kids. Shopping is great but beware of pickpockets. Tourists can be seen from a mile away. Just be careful when you next go down Topsham Road -- it’s been known for several hit and runs. I advise you to stay in if you decide to come to Exeter and lock your doors. You will be safer. One thing that I must say is great about Exeter is all the good looking lads!
I now live in Canada. I use to live on
, in the Girls Boarding School, not too far from Widecombe in the Moor. I remember coming to Widecombe Fair, every year. Today, I decided to see what websites there were. It's great to see these beautiful places being used for tourists. Someday, I'll come back there to visit.
The best part of
are the roads leading out of it.
is wicked. If you fancy a good night out, go to Arena and then Paradise Tandoori. They have the best naan kebabs I have ever tasted in my life!
