Planning Your Visit

Located in the heart of the city centre is one of the region's oldest pubs and a favourite watering hole of Charles Dickens - or so we believe. Recently restored to its former glory, The Turks Head is back with a bang and ready to showcase its 700+ year history. Situated in the heart of Exeter, and just a stone’s throw from the cathedral, we’re the ideal location to begin your adventure and explore the city from.
