River Exe, Exmouth

4.5
#3 of 14 in Parks in Exmouth
The River Exe in England rises at Exe Head, near the village of Simonsbath, on Exmoor in Somerset, 8.4km from the Bristol Channel coast, but flows more or less directly due south, so that most of its length lies in Devon. It flows for 60 miles (96 km) and reaches the sea at a substantial ria, the Exe Estuary, on the south (English Channel) coast of Devon. Historically, its lowest bridging point was at Exeter, though there is now a viaduct for the M5 motorway about 3km south of the city centre.

  • Beautiful walks & bike paths all along the estuary. Peaceful, loads of birds. Safe for children & dogs.  more »
  • There are really many forces in the game, when the tide going out or into the river Exe. You see the best at Polotsk in Exmouth. We watched it several times, because we had stay with window right next to the river. It was great great quantities of water, which had to go through again and again.

  • You get what you pay for. Prices reflect the quality of fish served. Some non fish dishes. It's a place, no pun intended, for that special occasion.  more »
