GETTING AROUND EXETER DURING YOUR HEN WEEKEND
The city centre is fairly small, so it’s easy to get around on foot. Exeter central station (rather than Exeter St Davids) is nearest to both the city centre and the Hotel du Vin which we work with for hen groups in Exeter. You can hire bikes to explore Exeter during your hen weekend, however Exeter is a hilly city, so unless you’re up for the challenge then we would recommend you stick to the paths by the canal and river Exe for a more easy going hen do activity!
