Late Night Shopping – Shop a Little Longer

Are you tired of having to dash out of work for that last minute shopping before closing time? Well, rush no more, because we have compiled a list of stores that are open until at least 7pm on a Thursday evening.


Once you have finished your shopping and worked up an appetite, why not treat yourself to a meal at one of the ever-growing selection of Exeter eateries? See for more details.


Don’t forget if you’re travelling into the city by bus or using the Park & Ride then you can still extend your stay in the city. Stagecoach buses are operating a number of city and out of town services until 11pm or later. Their timetables can be found at


For those using the Park and Ride service, the last RED M2 bus to Honiton Road departs from Paris Street at 8.40pm, or the Number 4 bus goes to Honiton Road once an hour, starting at 8.10pm from the bus station until 11:10pm.


If you want to park more centrally, three of Exeter City Council’s car parks will be offering FREE parking after 6pm on Thursdays for the rest of 2020!

The three car parks are:
