Welcome to Exeter

Exeter is a city where medieval and modern sit side-by-side - the ancient blending smoothly with the contemporary. And it's a city that buzzes - with cinemas, theatres, bars, great pubs and restaurants. The award-winning Exeter University, the South-West’s pre-eminent centre of learning, has a world-leading academic record and international outlook.

Exeter is a city of surprises where medieval and modern sit side-by-side - the ancient blending smoothly with the contemporary.  The city centre is home to an impressive £235 million retail centre with over 60 new shops and restaurants and its cafés, restaurants and pubs mix easily with Exeter’s historic buildings.

Exeter is home to the magnificent St Peter’s Cathedral in the heart of the city and is one of the finest examples of late medieval architecture in Britain.  Or explore beneath the city’s streets in the medieval underground passages – the only attraction of their kind open to the public in Britain.

Nearby is the dramatic countryside of Devon, home to Exmoor, a landscape of moorland, woodland, valleys and farmland, shaped by people and nature over thousands of years.

Exeter is a safe, student-friendly city with a vibrant and fun culture and relaxed atmosphere.
The award-winning Exeter University St Luke’s Campus is just outside the city centre, with Streatham Campus, its largest site, located to the north-west of the city.  Its campus’ are some of the most beautiful in the country with lakes, woodland and park-like gardens offering a tranquil backdrop to the demands of student life.

Universities

Exeter University has three campuses: Streatham Campus and St Luke's Campus are in Exeter and the Cornwall Campus is at Penryn near Falmouth.

Getting around

Exeter is compact and the central area of the city is fairly small, so walking is an efficient (and free!) means of getting around.  Exeter is well served by public transport with an established network of bus routes operated by Stagecoach Devon who also operate to most regional destinations.   Fast trains run from Exeter’s St David’s station into London’s Paddington station, taking around 2 ½ hours.  

Shopping

The High Street is well served with national clothing and electronics chains and two mall-type shopping developments, the Guildhall and Harlequins, offer a further range of national shops.  A larger concentration of independent shops can be found in the streets just off the High Street.  Fore Street has a number of good outdoor shops and Gandy Street and the Cathedral Green offer a similarly eclectic range of retailers. Princesshay is home to over 70 retailers and offers some of the best shopping in the country!

Nightlife

Exeter has a number of theatre’s and cinemas, including Northcott Theatre, located on the University campus and the Picture House in Bartholomew Street has a café-bar and free wi-fi.  A number of nighclubs cater to a student clientele - Riva, Arena, Timepiece, Havana, and Warehouse.  Cavern plays more for indie bands with the Old Firehouse offering a more jazzy vibe.

Restaurants and eating out

Exeter has a good range of restaurants, including the national chains of Pizza houses which are well represented, with ASK and Pizza Express on Cathedral Green and Zizzi's in Gandy Street. The suburb of Topsham also has a good range of restaurants.
