Visit

We’re really proud of our city. Come and visit us, and you’ll quickly see why.

Arthur Mee, writing in the 1930’s, described Exeter as “the noble citadel of the West”.

He was focusing on the living history apparent at every turn here, anchored by the magnificent cathedral.

Our location defines us too. Dartmoor lies just to the west, and you’re never far from the water.

But Exeter is also a thoroughly modern, lively city.

There’s a rich mix of shopping options, including a strong independent sector. And we have an excellent food and drink offer.

It’s really easy to get here; we sit at the start of the M5, and have a successful airport that’s brilliantly connected.

We look forward to welcoming you.
