Exeter in general Reviews
Newest Review: ... but I feel that Exeter City Council are trying to modernise the city to much, its known for its history and feel the money could have been spent more wisely like improving the standard of living for those who are in poverty and to improve the vandalised parks and buildings in some areas. That aside Exeter does have many pros, for a start employment is fairly easy to find there especially with their expanding high street and industrial estate, Marsh Barton. Exeter does have some fascinating attractions the three I would recommend are..... Exeter Cathedral - A truly beautiful place to be, the cathedral was founded in 1050 and is the hea... more

I lived in Exeter for 19 years, I grew up in St. Thomas area, since moving people always tell me what a great place Exeter is, although I agree it's a good place to visit it is not a place I would want to live in again. Although there are good and bad things about every city and others may have a completely different view than I on living in Exeter. I think that certain areas have become wrecked which is extremely disappointing as the city holds beautiful archaeology and history. I think that its good that the city have put the mall in as it is obviously going to attract more shoppers providing the city with more income, which is very much needed, but I feel ...

I often wonder how anyone can some up an entire city, even a small one like Exeter, in a review like this. There is an endless amount of things one could say about Exeter, or any other city for that matter, as these days cities are rapidly loseing any uniqueness. Every city has the same shops, and all these shops sell exactly the same products. For this review I will attempt to outline what makes Exeter different, whilst also explaining what makes it exactly the same as anywhere else. Exeter is an old city, founded some 2000 years ago by the Roman 2nd Augusta Legion as a military outpost. Around the centre of the city one can see the remains of the Roman wall in ...

....well not literally of course! That is the slogan though which Exeter City Council uses to promote the city, and in many ways it is true. Exeter is a small cathedral and university city (perhaps comprobable with Durham) but it has a strong civic identity and is clearly a city which is rightfully proud of itself. The city has never had a major industry and perhaps this contributes to the air of historical continutiy, interuupted only by the Lufftwaffe in areas of less pleasent post-war architecture on the High Street. It is an an ancient city though, and its heart has always been the cathedral, which has been a site of worship for 1000s of years having been ... Read the complete review

Exeter is well situated as the central city in Devon. It boasts a host of historic buildings..Roman walls, underground passages, medieval public houses and of course, the wonderful Exeter Cathedral, (which actually has well preserved Roman baths under the forecourt). The Victoria and Albert Museum is well worth a visit..especially if the weather is wet..not only does it house a notable array of taxidermied animals, but also an impressive collection of foreign artifacts, ranging from ancient Greek/ Egyptian/ Roman etc. In view of local interest, there is also a well thought out collection of various finds which have been located within the shire. One will find the ... Read the complete review

As a local Exeter seams the perfect place to live in, and offers some kind of activity for evey age range and every personality. If you are young and want a bit of excitement there are clubs on the Quay where you cann party, and awide range of pubs and bars. Also the are the cineama, football club and rugby clubs, as well as the Exeter festival held anually. For the younger children there are several nice beaches in North Devon (South Devon is nice but North Devon is much better)and local ammusement parks like Crealy Farm (Working farm with play areas) and Woodlannds (Amusement park) For the people looking to get away from it all then Exeter ...
