Exeter is a thriving city that is surviving the worst of the recession thanks to the relocation of new businesses (Met Office) a spanking band new shopping centre (including John Lewis) , (probably) the best university in the UK (outside of London and Oxbridge!) and a top premiership rugby team (come on the Chiefs).

Exeter is home to the magnificent St Peter's Cathedral in the heart of the city. The Cathedral still features two massive Norman towers that were part of the original building when it was consecrated in 1133. The building is one of the finest examples of late medieval architecture in Britain and has just had a makeover to rejuvenate it. Set in the city centre and surrounded by green space it makes a great meeting area or picnic area for the city workers.
