Overview

A small city that packs a big punch, Exeter is one of the most vibrant, attractive and historically interesting cities in England.

Pre-dating the arrival of the Romans in AD 50, Exeter’s history is rich and long. This is reflected in its fascinating visitor attractions including its unique Underground Passages, free Red Coat Guided Tours, magnificent Cathedral, imposing Roman wall and beautiful Quayside. Exeter is also home to the award-winning Royal Albert Memorial Museum where visitors can explore the city’s 2,000-year history under one roof!

Exeter has a real sense of individuality, its varied cultural scene is embraced by proud locals, and the diverse mix of eateries means it is renowned as one of the foodie capitals of the South West. Head to the West Quarter or the cobbled Gandy Street to discover great mix of independent shops and boutiques, cafes and bars.

In Exeter we love the outdoors. The city’s location in the heart of Devon, surrounded by miles of countryside and close to the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, means there are plenty of opportunities for adventure. This is the perfect place to try a new activity, or simply relax and enjoy the stunning scenery.
