However, this only tempers the overall downward trend over the last 12 months, down 10.8% for the whole country. This includes annual dips in all regions, since this time last year.

Footfall in Exeter’s Guildhall

The 287,000 square foot Guildhall Shopping Centre in Exeter, Devon is at its busiest at lunchtime on Saturdays as measured by Google analytics. According to the same statistics, collected from mobile phone data, the footfall signature for the centre shows a typical single lunchtime peak throughout the week. The Centre, built in 1976 and distinctive for the Medieval Church incorporated into its structure, is owned by Aviva Investors who submitted plans for a dining quarter extension in October last year.
