Exeter Wedding

Exeter is an attractive city in Devon, on the banks of the River Exe. It has a beautiful cathedral, with a building that was completed by about 1400, though begun centuries earlier. Its early wealth came from fishing and farming, and from its position for those travelling to and from Bristol from the West Country. Much of the original city was destroyed by bombing during the war, and urban planners also removed many old and interesting buildings. Nevertheless there are some interesting remnants of the past, and many pleasant spots, not least on the waterfront. Exeter is another of those cities which attracts students to study who then stay on because of the lifestyle. No wonder then that there are many good wedding venues to choose from.
