    • Where is this place?

      by rachael_t Online Now Nov 17, 2013 at 5:33 AM

      Hi, about 10 years ago I was in hospital in exeter. An old lady was going in to town. I needed to buy a new mobile phone and asked to go along.

      When I got there I saw an amazing place, it had some old roman/Athens looking remains which were very big, and a totally different looking building, it is only the frame left, made of a sort of brown stone with small bubbly holes like a wispa chocolate bar, it was very weathered.

      I would like to visit it again, but don't know exactly where it was too.

      About 40 minutes bus drive from a hospital in exeter Devon.

      Please help me find this place again, I have drawn a picture here;

      Thank you for any help.

      day trips by public transport

      by littlelawyer Online Now Jul 13, 2013 at 4:21 AM

      Hello there. I'm planning to spend a few days in Exeter in September, during the week, and won't have a car. How easy is it to do day trips or e.g. walking on Exmoor if relying on public transport? Any suggestions for nearby places to visit?

      Cheers. L

      House heating during the night in June

      I'm staying with a family, but I was shy to ask if it is cold during the night and if I need thicker sleeping clothes, or if they use heating in the house during the night. What is the usual?

      Thanks ;-)

      clothes for end of June 2013

      by mysticflower Online Now Jun 2, 2013 at 4:11 AM


      Would you please advise me on what would be the best clothes to bring and what shoes for a 2 week stay this June? I had some ladies telling me boots would be fine ( to wear with a dress. Will I look strange to others by wearing boots in June? Should I bring ballerina shoes?(

      What do people usually wear? I don't want to stand out, just be feminine.

      What do you recommend ? What is the weather usually like in June?
      Thank you!

    • Any good bars/club

      by Laura1980 Online Now Sep 13, 2012 at 11:56 AM

      We are staying in Exeter in November on a girls weekend. We are looking for somewhere to go on a Saturday night. Ideally somewhere that is open late with music that we can dance to but not a full on club, a bar with music and an area for dancing would be great but with the option to sit and chat as well. Anyone know what the Monkey Suit is like? Or any other suggestions welcome.

      Four days in East Devon

      by jonathanbarker Online Now Dec 28, 2010 at 11:21 AM

      Hello and happy New Year, I will be staying in Devon in middle January, arriving on the 15th, I am planning to meet a VT member in Exeter for a drink on the 15th (evening).

      My other plans are to visit Exmouth (I will probably be staying with my sister) and Barnstaple, a place I know little about execept it's the country town of North Devon. If the South Devon Railway is running from Totnes to Buckfastleigh is running I may go there on the 16th.

      Can anyone advise me of a good eating place in Barnstaple please. It is always nice meeting VT people.

      Please see the meeting page
