Town Centre

Located on the western end of the “Jurassic Coast”, Exmouth is a short distance south of Exeter at the mouth of the River Exe and is a small busy seaside town in Devon. The town centre has a few cafés and unremarkable pubs and restaurants along with a rather neglected indoor market that is worth a visit.

The ocean is the main draw here which is located a short 10 minute walk from the town centre. The beach extends all the way from the mouth of the river to the cliffs marking the start of the Jurassic Coast with a road (and street parking) extending the entire length with a few restaurants and, of course, ice cream shops. The currents near the mouth of the river are considerable so swimmers must avoid that area though the beach is quite pleasant throughout.


It is worth walking to the end of the beach and around the corner to see the red cliffs of the “Jurassic Coast”, a section of the south coast of England that is well known for it's fossils and spectacular beauty. There is a trail along the top of the cliffs though walking along the base is safe enough though be aware of the tides.

There is parking along the beach though the large car park located at the train station is the largest offering “pay and display” options and only a short walk into the town centre. Getting around the town is easily accessed on foot.
