Exeter Shops & Shopping

The main shopping centre of Exeter is extensively pedestrianised and is served well by the Exeter bus services, which includes the park & ride scheme coming from the city's outskirts. There is pay and display street parking available in certain areas, this together with the many car parks offers the motorists a choice of parking areas within easy reach of the city centre.

  • Sundays - 10.30am To 4.30pm (Not all shops trade)


Exeter underwent a huge revamp to it's Princesshay shopping area. The work, which took over four years to finish, at a cost of over two-hundred million pounds, put the city firmly on the map as the area's favourite shopping destination. The development, completed by Land Securities, officially opened on the 20th September 2007 and added further to Exeter's shopping appeal bringing many top brands to the city. Together with some great local independent retailers, Princesshay has also become the home to several eating establishments, many providing a continental pavement-café service within Princesshay Square and Blue Boy Square.

As well as the new Princesshay development, Exeter still has many shops including chic, unique and top brands beyond this sector. The High Street is still the main shopping street in the centre with Princesshay being just one of a number of shopping zones that lead off. Others, including Harlequins and the Guildhall shopping centres, Queen Street, South Street and Sidwell Street all offering plenty more.

The busy High Street, its quaint little shopping streets leading off, and the undercover centres all provide mainly pedestrianised shopping in the heart of Exeter. While the city's retail parks can be found a little further out at Stone Lane / Marsh Barton, Exe Bridges and Rydon Lane.
