A Trip to Exmouth

Of course when you do go, you must make sure you take a walk along the shorefront, that is a definite!  Or if you don’t fancy walking that far, just stop and sit awhile, soaking up the Autumn sun (hopefully). And breathing in the fresh sea breezes.  The last time I visited, back in July, I bought my favourite sandwiches from M&S, and a bottle of water, and enjoyed my short lunch break sat on the sea front.  It made a welcome change to be out in the fresh sea air.  It really did blow the cobwebs away.

Depending what time of year you visit, you may be able to see people participating in the many watersports on offer.  There is wind-surfing, sailing, canoeing and many more sports to choose from. Take a look at the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site as well, with cliffs which are 250 million year old.  An amazing sight.

Around the area called the Strand, is Exmouth’s Café Quarter.  This a great place to shop, with a range of restaurants, coffee shops, bars and other food and drink outlets. You can also find a couple of art shops, a traditional fish-mongers and lots more shops to spend time browsing for something a little bit different.

Keep a look out for the farmers markets as well, and don’t forget to visit the Indoor Market.  There are loads of stalls all under one roof with a whole variety of local produce, products and things to buy.

All in all, plenty to do and see and while away a few enjoyable hours!
