Cathedral View, originally home to Wippell ecclesiastical suppliers in the 1880’s, is a Grade II listed building with impressive original Gothic Revival features. Exeter Cathedral is one of the oldest and arguably one of the most beautiful in England, dating back to the early 12th century. The Norman Cathedral, which was replaced from 1270 - 1340, forms the base for the beautiful Gothic building we see today, with its famous west front and elegant nave. The city itself dates back more than 2,000 years and once served as a centre of trade for the Roman Empire. The old city walls can still be found in nearby Southernhay, forming part of the City Wall Trail, one of many historical walks around Exeter. The city also shines in the education arena with both Exeter University and Exeter College gaining national recognition as stand out educational providers.
A dedicated restaurant quarter on Queen Street has brought new restaurants to the city, with rooftop bars, DJs and live music, making this a firm favourite for foodies. Exeter is also one of the region’s favourite places for shopping. Princesshay offers an array of high-street brands, with smaller independents in the Castle Quarter of the city, Gandy Street and Fore Street.
Exeter is a perfectly positioned city - it is easy to see why the Sunday Times voted it one of the best places to live in the UK.

A small city that packs a big punch, Exeter is one of the most vibrant, attractive and historically interesting cities in Devon. And what gifts it has: surrounded by beaches, hills, wilderness, astonishing food producers and old country pubs; a cityscape of medieval gothic and Georgian townhouses and never far from stunning views across the estuary to the horizon hills. The old canal basin is a delight of converted warehouses, shops and eateries.
Pre-dating the arrival of the Romans in AD 50, Exeter’s history is varied, which is reflected in a plethora of attractions and things to do. Try the unique Underground Passages, free Red Coat Guided Tours, imposing Roman wall and beautiful Quayside and award-winning Royal Albert Memorial Museum.
Exeter is a very walkable city. You can also rent a bike (or a paddleboard!) with Saddles & Paddles. Exeter has lots of cycle trails and walking routes to choose from, taking you beyond the city boundaries through beautiful valley parks and picturesque towns and villages.
Exeter is so close to the beach, you can easily leave your car at home and travel by train down to Topsham, Exmouth or Dawlish. Sit back and enjoy views of rolling countryside and dramatic coastline on one of a number of scenic journeys from Exeter, including the Avocet Line to Exmouth in East Devon, the Tarka Line to North Devon and the Riviera Line to South Devon passing over the famous Dawlish sea wall.
There is a good, reliable bus service, with buses running within the city and outside of the city. Travel Devon is a great place to start planning a day out from Exeter by bus. A handy interactive map allows you to view timetables and routes. Buses run from Exeter to numerous locations across Devon, including a number of popular attractions. These include Crealy Adventure Park, Exeter Racecourse, and the World of Country Life.
The Old Firehouse
Blink and you'll miss this teeny-tiny, up-and-down, atmospheric pub, steps from Exeter high street and once a fire brigade base in the 1800s. The Old Firehouse has bags of atmosphere and a selection of local ales.
Exeter Cathedral – don't miss the minstrels’ gallery, the organ and the astronomical clock, and be sure to look up to see the beautiful stained glass windows and the longest stretch of unbroken Gothic vaulting in the world.
