Dating in Exeter just got a whole lot easier with the romantic wisdom of the eHarmony dating site. Perhaps you're one of the many hardworking or professional singles looking to find love in the city? Then join the eHarmony dating website, and meet highly compatible Exeter singles for a fun and adventurous series of dates, a step above the crude romance of drinks on a Friday night.
The county city of Devon, Exeter retains a fair amount of West Country charm, and oozes history. To the immediate west lie pine forested slopes and the striking granite tors of Dartmoor, to the south is floodplain, marshlands and cosy coastal towns, while to the north lie the rolling hills and thatched villages that bring to mind a time long gone. Exeter is set in truly beautiful surroundings, so if you're dating there, remember to journey out on occasion.
The beaches of Exmouth, Seaton and Beer are fabulous areas to tan and try out your portable barbecue, while the werewolf territory of Dartmoor is a good for a walk. Take a bus out to Winkleigh to visit the cider farm, or hire a canoe from Exeter's quayside and row down the river to waterside pubs like Double Locks, or the Swan's Nest. A cycling date is perfectly possible along the flood plain, and trains run frequently to Exmouth for fish and chips on the beach.
For history, visit the newly refurbished Royal Albert Memorial Museum, explore the medieval tunnels under Exeter or follow the cobbled alleys from the high street to reach gorgeous Rougemont Gardens, dominated by the castle that few Exonians even know to exist.
Entertainment can be found at the Northcott Theatre, which always puts on a good show. Alternatively head to Beats & Bass at the Cavern nightclub, or find live music at the Cellar Door on the quayside. Boardgames can be found at the Bowling Green pub, and delicious cocktails can be found at the wonderfully stylish 44 Below.
On a shopping date, follow the high street along the furthest downhill end to find The Real McCoys Arcade, which has a real bazaar vibe, with the vintage shop inside apparently responsible for the numbers of odd but stylishly dressed people relaxing at the café tables.
For food, don't forget Mill-on-the-Exe. The meals are good and cheap, while in summer the balconies bloom with flowers. Mashawi is the perfect place for a lunch date, selling inexpensive quality Lebanese, and you can smoke shisha on the balcony of the Moroccan restaurant Al Farid, which overlooks the ornate cathedral. Meanwhile, the Old Firehouse serves the best pizzas in the city after 9, and hosts a vast selection of wines and West Country ciders. There you can chat to your date by candelight as the live music bands play on.
This is one Exeter dating site that really helps you host those charming conversations, so register with eHarmony today and reveal the dating partner submerged somewhere in that city skyline.
