Why Exeter ...
Exeter has a thriving nightlife scene, a famous race course and top quality activities. With a rich heritage there are plenty of things to see in between destroying the lads around the go karting track or paintballing.
Exeter's main sight is the Cathedral Church of Saint Peter, which is framed by parks and wonky half-timbered buildings. Also worth a visit are Powderham Castle and the Underground Passages.
To create your action-packed Exeter stag weekend you could start Saturday off with 4x4 off road driving to get the adrenaline pumping, before embarking on a high ropes course. Break for lunch then try out honda pilots where you'll get to ride these roll caged, track hugging, one man motor machines round dirt tracks.
Start the night off with some belly-aching laughs in a top Exeter comedy club - see up-and-coming comedians as well as a potential celebrity comedian appearance - then embark on a dinner cruise. You'll have a delicious, slap-up meal while the coastline of Exeter glides by. Once back on land we'll organise guestlist entry and queue jump to one of the best clubs in Exeter.
When to visit
As a seaside destination, Exeter is buzzing during the warmer months of the year, as surf stars are attracted by the huge waves and (sometimes) nicer weather and holidaymakers enjoy the beaches.
Accordingly, the clubs and bars are much more lively and busy in the summer with a youthful surf-seeking crowd. However, the rest of the year isn't half bad, with September's slightly odd Cheese and Onion Fayre and the Beer Rhythm and Blues fest in October. April hosts an annual must-see event 'The Exe Factor', which welcomes many fantastic local musical acts.
If you can bear to tear yourself away from the brilliant seafront, try out paintballing and go karting or even 5 a side and air gun shooting! Or, make like the locals and hit the water with waterskiing, wakeboarding and kayaking.
There really is something for everyone to try out in Exeter in between enjoying the fantastic nightlife and historic delights of this wonderful city.
