Olde worlde Exeter
is a really friendly cosmopolitan city. Everyone you meet is really nice and unlike other places, always have the time of day for you – this makes for an ideal location for your celebration. Why surround yourself with miseries when you can have jolly Exeter faces at every turn!?!
It’s an historic city with it’s 11th century cathedral, it’s castle and medieval Guildhall which makes for interesting wanderings and meanderings around the roads and the lanes. And wait till you spot ‘the house that moved’ as well as realising that feeling of claustrophobia that has suddenly come over you is due to your walking up the narrowest road in the world, Parliament Street. When you have had your fill of interesting attractions around the town, why not have a delicious cream tea at the Wharf or beside the Cathedral.
Exeter is so easy to get to with it’s convenient location right at the beginning of the M5, 2 main railway stations and about half a dozen sub railway stations. There’s also an airport, several Park & Ride schemes about the city for the drivers and a huge bus network for the passengers amongst us. It’s within easy reach of Plymouth, Torquay, Cornwall, Bristol and the Midlands – so all in all, Exeter’s a pretty accessible location for parties and celebrations of any description.
Retail therapy is on offer in abundance with all the shopping possibilities available around the city centre.
There are indoor shopping centres (including the Guildhall), pedestrianised streets with all the designer labels and street markets. Alongside all the shops in the city centre sit the numerous coffee shops and restaurants – perfectly situated to recharge the batteries before hitting the shops again!
If you’ve had enough of the shops (huh?) there’s a whole range of theatres, galleries (try Exeter Phoenix, Spacex and the Royal Albert Memorial museum) and attractions to make your stay more interesting. Golfers on hen and stag dos will enjoy everything that the uber smart Exeter Golf & Country Club has to offer with its stunning 18 hole golf course and spa facilities!
That’s the day time organised, now for what Exeter brings to the evening…
You’ll be spoilt for choice with so many pubs, bars, clubs and other night time attractions! There is always plenty to keep you and your party people satisfied during the evenings in Devon’s no 1 city. Cream teas, cruises and nice people – what a good place for a party! Suggestions to get your night started include Mama Stone’s, the Walkabout, the Timepiece and the Arena.
Where to stay in Exeter is as you would expect – packed with options with all shapes and sizes of hotel on offer and plenty of them at that! Suggestions include the Mercure Southgate Hotel (boutique in style with nice restaurant and spa facilities – perfect for your hen night! Another big plus is that it is right bang in the city centre), the City Gate Hotel, Exeter’s best Western Hotel and for a hotel in a stunning location on the outskirts of Exeter why not try the Deer Park Country Hotel.
I hope I’ve given you plenty to think about when it comes to planning your Exeter party but may I also (cheekily) suggest, a party is not a party without a photo booth. I would say that (I hear you say) I have a photo booth company – but I really believe in the value it brings to a party. As well as the cheezy fun and daftness a photo booth adds to a party, it is a great icebreaker (ideal when your party guests don’t know one another very well) and is purely loads of laughs. And you can personalise each and every print-out to bring lasting memories for you and your guests.
