Fodor's Review

Exeter's historic waterfront on the River Exe was the center of the city's medieval wool industry, and the Custom House, built in 1682, attests to the city's prosperity. The city's earliest surviving brick building is now flanked by Victorian warehouses and houses a visitor center where you can view documents on the city's maritime history and an audiovisual display.
