LocationExeter is situated in the southern corner of England, about 200 miles south west of London, but only 9 miles from the coastal town of Exmouth. If you get tired of the city, some of the most stunning countryside in Britain is right on your doorstep. The coastal areas enjoy long sandy beaches perfect for sailors, swimmers, water skiers, windsurfers, kite surfers, and sunbathers. The wild scenery of the national parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor provides an exciting challenge for hikers, climbers, horse riders, cyclists, and other sports enthusiasts. In addition the gentler landscapes of rolling hills, rivers, and attractive market towns and villages are perfect for exploring at a leisurely pace.
Exeter has a population of around 122,000 and is consistently rated in national surveys as one of the best places to live in the UK. The city center is only a 15-minute walk away from the university, so Exeter combines the virtues of a campus and a city-center university. The city is steeped in history; the best known building in Exeter is the Cathedral which was consecrated in 1133 and rebuilt in the late medieval period. Close by is the Royal Albert Memorial Museum. From there, it is a short walk along a cobbled street, which has many interesting shops, to the Exeter Phoenix, a thriving center for the arts in Devon. The Guildhall in the High Street is the oldest civic building in the country; Moll's Coffee House and the Ship Inn were favorite haunts of Sir Francis Drake and Sir Walter Raleigh. It is easy to reach Bristol, London and the rest of the country through rail and motorway links from Exeter. London is just 2.5 hours away by high speed train.
