Exeter High Street

Exeter High Street, just to the north west of Exeter Cathedral, runs downhill in a straight line from Paris Street down to the junction with Market Street, when the road becomes Fore Street.

Exeter High Street

Now a typical, rather nondescript shopping precinct, Exeter High Street was badly damaged in World War II and the wrecker's ball in the 1970s.

Both Debenhams and Marks & Spencer have department stores on the street and the Harlequins Centre, at the junction with Queen's Street, has a number of smaller stores. The recent Princesshay development is also good for shopping and alfresco dining, when the Devon weather allows.

Many local buses also depart from Exeter High Street, with most bus stops congregated just after the junctions with North Street and South Street and farther up the street past Gandy Street.

Walking away from the river is the Sidwell Street Market. Sidwell Street Market operates from Monday to Saturday 8.30am to 4.30pm.
