Originally the South Gate to the city
South Street is positioned on an incline adjacent to the Exeter Cathedral with two roads leading off to this magnificent Exeter attraction. It has a variety of shops and places to eat that line both sides of the ascent into the city. Retailers include galleries, estate agents, hair stylist and a number of charity shops. On Thursdays, for those who wish to sample the local area produce, the street also hosts the Exeter Farmers Market on its junction with Fore Street.
Although now demolished, there once was a gate to the city at the bottom of the hill know as the Southgate. This was removed, roads were widened and its name changed from South Gate Street to South Street. Although this road has always been a main route to the city from the East and South, the section at the bottom is now a very busy junction of the inner bypass.
