As Devon’s county city, Exeter is surrounded by hilly countryside and beautiful beaches. The city itself is filled with traditional old pubs, and Georgian townhouses and gothic buildings line its cobbled streets. All this history is contrasted with the post-war area of the city’s shopping streets, meaning as a place to live, there’s something for everyone.
There are around 20,000 students at Exeter University, meaning that during term time, the city’s population swells. This high population of young people means that there are plenty of amenities to make use of like independent bars, restaurants and cafes. For those interested in local culture, a visit to the Royal Albert Museum or the Guildhall display artefacts from Exeter’s history.

In terms of public transport, Exeter has three train stations: Exeter Central, Exeter St Thomas and Exeter St Davids, with services from each running to Cornwall and London. Around the city itself, buses are a popular means of travel. Due to the city’s proximity to Dartmoor and Exmoor, the town centre is known to be hilly and steep in places. This makes walking or driving one of the best ways of getting around, and the city is adequately geared up for this.
Exeter is the perfect place for those who crave the ruggedness of a countryside landscape along with the convenience of an urban environment. It’s a popular place to live with people of all ages, and families enjoy its proximity to the seaside.
The city’s buoyant local economy means that house prices are above the national average, ranging around £280,000.
