The countdown to Christmas in Exeter got underway with the Christmas Lights Switch On which took place on Thursday 17th November. A brand new lighting scheme provided by Exeter BID illuminates the city centre, so visitors can follow the lights and explore the different stores and restaurants available as they go.

The Christmas Lights Switch On also marked the start of late night shopping, with selected stores staying open until 9pm, so shoppers have even longer to find the perfect gifts for Christmas.
