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

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.

The guildhall happened to be open for an exhibition of local historic maps. These maps were nice, but the real highlight is a view of the interior. The wooden beams supporting the roof looked quite remarkable to me. The large paintings of (presumably) prominent persons...More

The guild hall has been in operation as a guild hall and as a city office since it was built. You can easily see it yourself or you see it on one of the Exter tours that begin at the Cathedral.
