Evidence of Exeter's 2,000 year history still exists today in its many historic buildings


Exeter is one of the attractive and historically interesting cities in England. Pre-dating the arrival of the Romans in AD 50, its history is rich and long. This is reflected in its fascinating visitor attractions such as the magnificent Cathedral and unique Underground Passages. The city also has a real sense of individuality, renowned in the south west for its independent arts scene, and for the quality of its locally produced food and drink.
