The ancient city of Exeter offers so many fascinating ways to fill a day. Here are some of our favourites.
Scottish writer and director Bill Douglas was a critically acclaimed voice in British cinema through the 70s and 80s, most notably making a renowned trilogy about his difficult childhood. When he wasn’t making films, he and his friend Peter Jewell spent their time amassing an enormous collection of film memorabilia, which was then donated to the University of Exeter. This collection became the Bill Douglas Cinema Museum, which consists of 75,000 artefacts dating as far back as 1796. This should be top of the list of things to do in Exeter for any lover of film.
The Mercure Rougemont Hotel in Exeter is perfectly located for all the city’s attractions as well as being an excellent wedding venue.
