A shopping environment well worth the visit
If you like shopping, then you will not be disappointed with the shops that are here in Exeter. There really should be something to satisfy everybody's taste, whether it's one of the high street chain stores that include John Lewis, Debenhams and Marks & Spencer, or one of the many independent outlets such as Jonathan Hawkes in the Harlequins Centre.
After one of the main shopping areas in Exeter was redeveloped it provided Devon with what was to become one of the South West's best shopping environments. Other
areas are now also being enhanced, which is attracting the interest of further big high street names to the city.
The Princesshay Centre is probably still the most talked about shopping area in Exeter, maybe even the whole of Devon and beyond, but you really would be missing out if didn't look a little further. In addition to this quarter, Exeter has many top brands, independent and free-spirited shops. As with most towns and cities the high street is usually a good place to start and Exeter's High Street is no exception. It's still the main shopping street in the city with Princesshay being just one of a number of peripheral shopping zones that lead off.
Put all this together with some of the city's shopping villages such as Magdalen Road, St Thomas, and the slightly further out retail parks, and you really do have a variety worth visiting!
