Exeter’s 14th century Gothic cathedral, Devon
Exeter is an historically interesting city and the capital of Devon, with grand medieval buildings such as the cathedral, houses in Cathedral Close, St Nicholas Priory, Quay House and The Guildhall as well as various medieval churches, half-timbered Tudor houses and well-kept Victorian and Georgian buildings. The city also contains the oldest public space in England, Northernhay Gardens.
But Exeter has more to offer than just ancient sights – university students bring a buzz to the city encouraging a wide range of lively, historic pubs in the compact city centre and around the quay, in addition to a variety of energetic festivals throughout the year and one of the newest, top rugby teams in Britain.
