Located along the stunning Devon coastline and on the River Exe, Exeter is an ancient Roman city with gothic architecture and castles. So whether you’re looking to get lost in history, be at one with the coastal nature or spend the day at the beach, City Gate is the perfect spot to stay and use as your base, safe in the knowledge you can retreat to the pub after a long day of exploring for a delicious meal and cosy night sleep.

Exeter Cathedral

Standing proudly in the city is one of Devon’s most impressive sights. Dating back to the 12th century and made from a stunning, warm honey-coloured stone, explore one of the most extraordinary medieval sites in Southern England.

Royal Albert Memorial Museum

A fixture on the city’s cultural scene since Victorian times, this hulking red-brick museum recently received a £24 million revamp.  It’s a treasure trove of rambling rooms filled with interesting objects! The perfect day out with the family, before heading back to the pub for a hearty meal!

Devon Wildlife Trust

The area surrounding our hotel is as beautiful as it is interesting.  Explore tonnes of wildlife, nature and species, along with old flour mills!  After a long day of walking, come back and spend the night in comfort at our hotel, resting your weary legs on our super comfy beds.

Underground Passages

Perfect for a day exploring with the little ones, prepare for a day of crouching down in a hard hat to get spooked by what is the only publicly accessible system of it’s kind in England!  These medieval vaults were built to transport water around the city, and now the perfect exploring spot for curious minds!

Exeter Quay

Only a few minutes away from the hotel, you will find the perfect activity for a sunny day.  Cobbled paths wind between former warehouses, now converted into quirky shops, trendy cafes and restaurants.

Jurassic Coast

A World Heritage Site for a reason, this stretch of coastline includes many famous coves, arches and harbours – all as beautiful and interesting as the next.   Whether you’re driving along the rugged coastal roads, or have your hiking boats securely fastened, pop in after for a well deserved drink!
