Exeter Historic Quayside
The Quayside has been enhanced to provide a fascinating mix of historic and contemporary design. It is the ideal place to browse in antique shops, walk and cycle, take a relaxing boat trip or find something good to eat. A wonderful place for everyone, whether you're looking to have an amble to take in the sights or perhaps something a bit more active for the family.

Stover Country Park
The main feature of this site is Stover Lake and its marsh. This 4 hectare lake supports a wealth of water birds and an excellent assemblage of dragonflies and damselflies; 19 species have been recorded here including rarities such as the hairy dragonfly, the migrant hawker and the red-eyed damselfly. Kids will love the woodland walks but don't forget the bread for the ducks!
