In [a target="_blank" href="/LatestIssue/archive/2012/10/31/grazia-readers-react-to-this-weeks-issue--our-regional-special-does-the-south-we.htm">this week’s issue of Grazia[/a] you’ll find our latest Grazia Local feature – a whopping eight pages of the best places to eat, shop, hang, party, drink and everything in between in Bournemouth, Southampton, Exeter, Plymouth, Bristol and Bath. Phew! Many of the places in our top ten lists that have been recommended by you – our readers in the know – you’ll find brilliant discounts and offers on them for a limited time only, so be sure to pick up a copy fast and get thee to city centre!

We’ve also recruited Grazia Local ambassadors – girls about town who know exactly where to pick up the best fashion buys or take your girlfriends to tea. Today's ambassador is Exeter’s 19 year old blogger [a target="_blank" href="http://www.asensibleheart.com/">Milly Tilson of A Sensible Heart[/a]. She's let us in on her top spots for a good time in Exeter. Scroll through for her pics...

The Phoenix: I love going to gigs at [a target="_blank" href="http://www.exeterphoenix.org.uk/">The Phoenix[/a], it’s a great venue for an intimate performance. Last night I went to see Jack Savouretti, his support act [a target="_blank" href="http://alicejemima.com/">Alice Jemima[/a]is an 18 year old singer songwriter from Devon. She had a really magical voice and I think everyone needs to go give her a listen!

Sprout: My first stop when I'm shopping in Exeter has got to be Paris Street for the charity stores. I love finding one off pieces and 'Sprout' is just the place for that! It has recently opened as a 'high end' charity shop boutique that funds local charity [a href="http://www.facebook.com/#!/profile.php?id=100003745669612" target="_blank">Emmaus[/a] and their work with the Homeless.  Normal 0 false false false EN-GB X-NONE X-NONE /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin-top:0cm; mso-para-margin-right:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:10.0pt; mso-para-margin-left:0cm; line-height:115%; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:11.0pt; font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif"; mso-ascii-font-family:Calibri; mso-ascii-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-hansi-font-family:Calibri; mso-hansi-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-bidi-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-bidi-theme-font:minor-bidi; mso-fareast-language:EN-US;} [a target="_blank" href="https://twitter.com/Relevantretro">Relevant Retro[/a]on Fore Street is another favourite of mine, full of beautiful vintage dresses (also handily sorted by colour!) The shop always has innovative displays; like earrings presented on old tennis rackets!

In the summer I love to go to Exeter Quay, it is always buzzing with people and live music. Sitting by the river's edge with a cider is the perfect way to spend a sunny afternoon. Many of the old warehouses have been converted into interesting boutiques and tea shops, ideal for alfresco drinks and cakes.

Clare Dumbleton-Taylor (Fri Nov 02 12:50:29 GMT 2012): Relevant is just the best vintage shop ever! It helps feed my addiction to vanity cases and luggage and dresses and all things vintage. In a day where there are so many beige shops of sameness this stands out as a sparkly piece of joy and wonder a true treasure cave!
