An Introduction to Exeter

Exeter is located in the Southwest of England on the River Exe. It is the capital city of Devon. The city is also home to Exeter Cathedral, which dates back to Norman times. The surrounding area of Devon with its sweeping countryside are only a few miles from the centre. Exeter is also ideally placed to base a trip to branch out visiting places such as the famous Dartmoor National Park and the unspoilt beaches of two coastlines.

Attractions in Exeter

Exeter should be a treat for fans of religious attractions and architecture with Exeter Cathedral, six medieval churches and a priory. The Guildhall claims to be the oldest in Britain still serving its original purpose and Parliament Street is the world's narrowest. There are museums worth a visit along with the Historic Quayside with its shops, craft workshops and the chance to cross the river on a floating bridge. The Royal Albert Memorial Museum. You can visit the underground waterworks that would have provided water for many. With free 90 minute walking Red Coat guided tours the city is very accessible. The town is also situated near Dartmoor National Park for those who are walkers or wish to enjoy the scenery.

History 

Exeter History

Exeter/

The Romans arrived in the Southwest about 50 AD and they built a wooden fort on a hill in Exeter near the river Exe at the lowest point where it could be easily crossed. The Romans made Exeter the administrative centre of Southwest England. 

The Danish tried to take Exeter in 1001 but the army warded them until they destroyed the town. In 1050 the bishop moved his seat to Exeter, after it had been rebuilt. Exeter was the centre of a rebellion in Southwest England in 1068. The Normans lay siege to Exeter for 18 days but they were unable to capture it. In Medieval Exeter the main industry was making wool. Exeter was also an important port in the Middle Ages.

Tudor Exeter was a large and important town. The main industry was still the manufacture of wool but there was also a thriving tanning industry. June 1643 saw the royalist army lay siege to the town. Exeter was forced to surrender in early September. However parliamentary forces recaptured Exeter early in 1646.

During the 19th century Exeter continued to grow but dwindled to being a quiet market town. The traditional industries of wool manufacture and tanning in Exeter also declined. Exeter ceased to be an important manufacturing centre. In May 1942 the Germans bombed Exeter and they destroyed much of the town centre. The city centre was rebuilt in the 1950's and Exeter university was founded in 1955.

Today most of the workforce in Exeter is employed in service industries such as tourism, education and public administration. In 2004 the Met Office moved to Exeter and in 2007 a new shopping centre opened at Princesshay. Today the population of Exeter is 118,000.
