2. Exeter Canal

The canal basin and & quay are an historic gateway to the City providing ample parking and easy access to sports, recreational and retail outlets. This picturesque area is a mix of old and new building and provides moorings for a wide range of vessels.   A walk or cycle along the tow path brings you to the Double locks, half way, or the Turf Hotel at the furthest reach of the canal.  Canoes and bikes are readily available for hire and a wide range of flora and fauna delight the visitor to this gateway to the estuary.
