Exeter Travel Guide

flights to Exeter

With continually improving rail and air links Exeter has begun to attract a number of large businesses to the city to enjoy the benefits of the ‘great outdoors’ lifestyle within the controlled framework of a successful and expanding commercial base.

The origins of the city’s importance pre dates the Romans who created much of the infrastructure of modern day Exeter. The city’s importance as an inland seaport from Medieval times to the post industrial revolution era of the late 1800’s has sealed a still visible air of prosperity on the city.

The 12th century Cathedral, the most popular visitor attraction of the city, is encircled by the Cathedral Close lined with many fine examples of Medieval and Georgian houses, once the homes of clerics and merchants. The city’s commercial centre with the exception of few ancient buildings is largely the result of rebuilding following bombing damage inflicted during WW2.

A leading city and regional shopping centre, the range and variety of the city’s shops reflects the needs of visitors, rural and city dwellers alike.  The area’s leading theatre, The Northcott, within the university campus, highlights the range and quality of Exeter’s entertainment and recreation. The Barnfield Theatre and the Exeter Phoenix are two other important venues with packed programmes of drama, music, comedy and frequent exhibitions. Like most university towns and cities in Britain, Exeter is not short of pubs, clubs and some distinctly non-genteel nightlife.

Exeter’s rural and marine proximities have spawned an expanding epicurean culture based on high quality local food products. As a consequence both Exeter and the surrounding area have by national terms almost an over abundance of excellent places to dine.
