Exeter

Exeter’s colourful history has seen it survive Roman rule and bombing in the Blitz.

Today the city is celebrated as a hub for culture and the arts from across South West England. Away from the bars of the city centre, the wilds of Dartmoor lie waiting to be explored.

Nightlife

Exeter is a small city, but it offers plenty in the way of nightlife, buoyed partly by its large student population. The city is home to a great number of pubs and bars, as well as a handful of nightclubs. A nice way to kick off an evening is with some relaxed drinks on the Quayside, where you’ll find a good range of bars, pubs and restaurants overlooking the River Exe and the Exeter Ship Canal.

Catching some live music is a popular way to spend an evening in Exeter, which has long served as a hub for up-and-coming bands and artists across the South West. The area around the Guildhall is a good place to head, with the Cavern and the Phoenix hosting local and international acts throughout the week.

Exeter is also home to a thriving theatre scene for a city of its size, with three main theatres and a number of other performing arts spaces. The Northcott Theatre on the university’s Streatham Campus hosts a varied programme of drama, opera, dance and comedy among other things. The Barnfield, meanwhile, is devoted to supporting local playwrights, performers and musicians.
