The quay dates from the days when Exeter was a port. This period of prosperity was brought to an abrupt end in the 13C when Isabella de Forz, Countess of Devon built a weir across the river and diverted all trade from Exeter to Topsham. The Custom House Visitor Centre presents models and artefacts charting the history of Exeter. Now regenerated, the warehouses of the former port house shops, cafés and restaurants, turning the quayside into a pleasant place for a stroll or to partake in leisure activities.
