“Worth a Look”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2012

These are worth popping along to tale a look at if you are in the area. However, they don't match up to the ones at Highgate cemetery in London

“Interesting site of Victorian History”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2012

I visited as part of a Red Coat tour and was enthralled at the lengths they went to when remembering their dead.
The catacombes are mysterious, being so different to what we do now, but an excellent system.
Definitely worth a visit

“Underwhelming”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2011

Was an interesting walk, with the Exeter Red Coat guided tour, but the actual underground passages were underwhelming. It's just a hallway of potential burial catacombs with only about 6 actual gravesites inside. Something to see, but not terribly exciting.
