Exeter and The South West

Established as a Roman Fort in AD55, Exeter has been the scene of shifting political and economic activity for almost 2000 years. Once a buzzing trading port on the tidal river Exe, the city is now a destination for businesses in the south-west and a lively centre for culture in the region.

With a rapidly growing population – 14% of which works or studies at the University – Exeter is a vibrant city offering activities to entertain all, hidden gems to explore and easy access to the beautiful coastline and national parks.
