Just before Christmas I visited Exeter for the day, I have never been to Exeter before, but my friend was born there and always said how nice it was, so I had always wanted to see what all the fuss was about.
The first thing that we did was going shopping – they have a massive amount of shops including my favourite Urban Outfitters so that instantly won me round. There are lots of mainstream shops but also a lot of independent ones so there is a good mix of shops available to look in. there was loads of café, bars and restaurants to go in all around the city.
The German Market was also on when we were there which made me like it even more as there was a great Christmassy feel to it. The city did not seem busy for a city if that makes sense which is why I think I enjoyed it so much. There is a lot to do but not the overwhelming business that puts you off cities, so it was very enjoyable.
We walked alongside Exeter Quayside and look in the cute little shops along the waterfront. I could only imagine how nice it must be down there in the summer.
The city is very vibrant and has a lot going on and if I had my choice again, I would definitely look at going there if I could as it seem like the perfect place for students.
I would highly recommend a trip to Exeter if you get the chance.
