Fragments of Exeter's russet-red City Wall weave an elusive, two-mile trail around the fringes of the old Roman city. The most ancient bits are 2000 years old and with newer, particularly Civil War, defences built on top, it's perfect for playing a game of history detective - decoding the layers of the past. A surprising 70% is still standing and it springs up beside shops and car parks as well as parks, often accompanied by information panels.
