Exeter is an historic city in the picturesque South West of England. The city was founded by the Romans almost two thousand years ago making it one of the oldest cities in England.  To this day the central area of the City remains encircled by massive Roman walls, constructed by 200AD.  Another unique attraction in the Underground Passages which run below the High Street.  The mediaeval labyrinth of water conduits is believed to date back to the 13th century.

The administrative centre for the County of Devon ( Please click here for information about Devon ) , Exeter is also famous for its Cathedral, its medieval buildings and ancient port.  The awe-inspiring 850 year old Cathedral dominates the city's skyline. This boasts unique Norman twin towers, the world's longest unbroken run of gothic vaulting and England's tallest Bishop's throne which soars to over twenty metres.  The West Front's Image Screen is richly adorned with sculptures of kings, bishops and prophets and is considered to be one of the finest in Europe.  Exeter enjoys a maritime climate with generally fine and mild weather in September.

The campus is near the centre of the city of Exeter with its famous cathedral.
To the north east of the Exeter is  the famous Georgian city of Bath.
The neighbouring regions of Dartmoor, the English Riviera, and the Eden Project are situated further to the west.

Exeter also has many coastal resorts nearby.
