Exeter

It's a Capital City! Well, of Devon, at least. But this compact city really does pack a punch and is frequently given top ratings for its shopping, eating, and cultural offerings. We'd recommend a whole day to explore the bustling High Street, Princesshay Shopping Centre, Cathedral Yard, Northenhay Gardens, and The Quayside - don't forget the famous Gandhi Street.
1 hour by car, but Park and Ride bus service recommended (signposted from A380)

Plymouth

Britain's Ocean City is a little further afield, but is well worth the visit even if just for the National Marine Aquarium. Also take time to explore Plymouth Hoe, where the famous Smeaton Tower is located. Or why not take a day boat trip or delve into a world of shopping? It is the largest shopping hub (bar Bristol) in the South West, after all.
