Great entrance on the High Street, and an amazing 16th Century wooden door gives access to the hall itself when open. Free entry so worth popping in.

The Guildhall in Exeter has been around for 600 years and has a wonderful medieval exterior. Located on the high street this building is grade I listed and is great to see.

It's free!! It's amazing and very historical. Take some time out of your day to be transported back in time. Slowly look all around because there is so much to see.

Beautifully preserved with a fine example of a barrel shaped ceiling. Built like the hull of a ship upside down. The lady guide was most helpful and informative. Visits are easy as it is on Exeter High Street.

Loads of shops with all the regulars plus lots of unusual ones too . Plenty of little cafes and generally good vibe

Not easy to find ( doesn't have a number in the High Street ?). A hidden little treasure and it's free to enter.

It would be easy to miss the Guildhall as you walk up the High Street which would be a pity as this really is a hidden gem. It is a fine building and is still used for public events. It only takes a few minutes...More

Quirky 16th Century porch leads to an impressive and well-maintained interior, one of the few surviving buildings of note in a street mauled by wartime German bombers and post-war English planners.

Free to enter and you should not pass by without going in, gives you a brief view of Exeters histery, No parking adjacent.

The Guildhall is situated in the main shopping street, it is free to enter and worth a visit because of its history and architecture. It is still used today for functions.
