Harlequins Shopping Centre

The Harlequins Shopping Centre is in the centre of Exeter, linked to the Guildhall Shopping Centre which then takes you to the High Street. Most of the shops and restaurants are independent businesses, committed to giving a high level of customer service and bringing extra variety to the shopping and eating in Exeter. The Harlequin Shopping Centre offers a wide variety of specialist shops which includes furnishings & interiors, cooking equipment, beauty, hairdressing & nail salons, party and greeting cards, fashion and accessories, watches and electronics. In addition there are restaurants and cafés offering a range of meals and drinks throughout the day.


Exeter’s compact and mostly pedestrianised centre makes shopping a breeze with a wealth of familiar and unique retail choices to help do some serious damage to your credit card. The historic High Street running through the centre is easy to navigate (only buses are allowed through), and features many of the big brand stores such as Laura Ashley, Marks & Spencers, Waterstones, Boots and Dingles, now part of the upmarket House of Fraser group. The Guildhall and Harlequins are two of the covered shopping centres, while the newly opened Princesshay hosts a collection of high-end brands and independent outlets. The cobbled atmospheric and ancient Gandy Street is the place for distinctive designer wear, crafts and unusual accessories, while the steeply sloping Fore Street has a collection of retro clothing, music and extreme sports stores. Continuing downwards to the bottom of the hill, the Quayside has a small but rewarding collection of gift, craft and antique shops housed in historic cellars and warehouses.
