Paris Street

Exeter Views Home to the Exeter Bus Station

Paris Street, together with Bampfylde Street is the location of the Exeter Bus Station. When going in the direction of the city centre and the High Street, you will first notice the beginning of the Princesshay Quarter. The edge of this shopping development, that has brought many top brands to the city and helped make Exeter the regions favourite shopping destination, starts from the traffic lights and forms the complete left-hand side of the road running all the way along to the High Street.

Visit Exeter This is what makes Exeter so different from any other city in the region.

Away from the busy High Street you'll find a wealth of chic independent stores that you can't find anywhere else.

Exeter Memories Paris (also spelt Parrys in 1765) Street was formerly called Shytebrook Street, after the brook of that name that ran from Chute Street in Newtown to the Exe. It gained its present name after pearr or pareis (Old French), both of which mean an enclosure. Before the blitz of 1942, the top of Paris Street was located about 60 metres to the east, along Sidwell Street. The bottom of the street joined the Heavitree Road at the Triangle, slightly below the Pyramids swimming pool. It was a very narrow street that was full of small shops and businesses including the first Greenslades garage, which was roughly where the Civic Centre is positioned now.
