With a population of around 130,000 people, Exeter is a long way from being one of the UK’s biggest cities. However, it can fairly claim to be one of the oldest. And as the capital of its county of Devon and the home of the University of Exeter, it’s a city that has a lot to offer.
Exeter's origins lie in prehistory. There were settlements in the area thousands of years ago, and finds of Greek and Roman coins suggest that these settlements were trading with the classical world as early as 250 BC. When the Romans invaded Britain, they established a fort at Exeter in 55 AD. A settlement grew up around the fort, and continued to expand even after the fort was abandoned. Glimpses of the old Roman walls of the city can still be seen to this day.
After the fall of the Roman Empire, Exeter was ruled by Saxons, though it was briefly captured by Vikings in 876. Following the Norman conquest of Britain, Exeter rebelled against the new King in 1068, leading William the Conqueror to lay siege to the city.
The city continued to expand through the medieval period. By the time of the English Civil War in the 17th century, Exeter was a prosperous town with an economy based on the wool trade. With the coming of the Industrial Revolution, Exeter began to decline in importance, but this led to many of the city’s historic buildings being preserved.
Nowadays, Exeter repeatedly ranks highly on lists of the UK's most livable cities. Thanks to a warm southern climate and a robust economy, it's a city well worth exploring.
With a history that goes back more than 2,000 years, Exeter is rich in ancient monuments. Best of all, the relatively small size of the city means that many of the top attractions are very close to one another. This quirky town makes for a fascinating place to explore.
See the spiritual heart of the city at Exeter Cathedral. Built around 1400, this Norman Gothic church boasts an astronomical clock and stained-glass windows from the 14th-century that miraculously survived bomb damage during the Second World War. It's a tranquil place to ponder the complex history of this town.
Step back in time at Cathedral Close. Once the site of the old Roman bathhouse, Cathedral Close is a historic neighborhood in the center of Exeter next to the Cathedral. The well-preserved ancient buildings are now home to a number of pubs and tea shops, and it's an excellent place to get refreshed in scenic surroundings.
Admire some of Devon’s cultural heritage at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum. Established in 1868 as a memorial to Queen Victoria’s husband, the museum houses an eclectic collection of art, artifacts, and natural history specimens that explain more about Exeter and its region.
Get some fresh air at the Historic Quayside. One of the most popular parts of the city for both locals and visitors, this Riverside neighborhood is full of parks, antique shops, quaint pubs, and other great places to spend a pleasant afternoon. Go for a stroll along the waterfront and enjoy the laid-back atmosphere of the town.
Don't miss a unique photo opportunity at Parliament Street. Just off Exeter's High Street, this may not be the world's narrowest street as it claims. But at 25 inches wide, it's definitely one of them. It makes for a great photo opportunity as you explore the center of the city.
Exeter airport is just a few miles outside the city and can be reached by bus. The airport flies to destinations throughout the UK and a few international airports. The nearest major airport is London Heathrow, which can be reached by long-distance bus in around two and half hours.
Exeter train station is close to the center of the city, just a few minutes' walk from the Cathedral and many of the town's other attractions. Trains stop here from London, Cardiff, and other cities throughout the UK.
Bus routes 173 and 359 stop outside the train station. From here, they travel through the center of the city to the Cathedral, making it easy to get around.
Due to its comparatively small size, Exeter is a very walkable city. And often, that's the best way to explore such an ancient town. You never know what you may find when you explore on foot. But you will want to do that while carrying heavy bags. So make sure you track down a Bounce luggage storage location in Exeter. No matter how many bags you have or how big they are, you can leave them at an Exeter luggage storage knowing they will be safely looked after until you come to pick them up.

If you don't feel like driving, the number 9 bus will take you from Exeter to the park.
The Donkey Sanctuary: Make friends with hundreds of adorable equines at The Donkey Sanctuary. Located a 30-minute drive east of the city, this large facility houses and cares for a huge herd of rescued donkeys.

Plus, you can help feed the donkeys and see them enjoying their new life.
Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!
This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!
Can’t believe I haven’t used this service until now. So easy & convenient. I 100% recommend.
