    Dashed into Exeter to pick up a data sim so we can navigate. We were just 5 minutes from the famous Exeter cathedral so we took a short walk through this historic area. Ate lunch at "Proper Burger" which it was. We were both too busy and terrified to take time to photograph the traffic. What's wrong with these folks? Still driving on the wrong side of the street.Read more

    Exeter Cathedral Dates back 900 years, it is one of England's most beautiful medieval cathedrals and one of the finest examples of decorated Gothic architecture in the UK. It is most famous for its two Norman towers, impressive west front carvings and the longest unbroken stretch of Gothic vaulting in the world. Of note are the Minstrels' Gallery, the 15 Century Astronomical Clock, a complete set of Misericords and the highly decorated tombs, bosses and corbels. The library contains the famous 'Exeter Book' of Anglo-Saxon verse, the Exon Domesday and many other historical documents.

    Also on exhibition were some amazing artifacts from WW2 along with some beautiful tapestry work.
