Officially voted as one of the top 20 best places to live in the UK, Exeter is a quaint yet rapidly expanding city in the South West. Although Exeter is thought to be a relatively small and traditional city, it is close to beautiful coastline, national parks and vast countryside, as well as having excellent transport links to Bristol, Devon, Plymouth and the M5 corridor, and an international airport.
The city itself boasts quaint architecture, cobblestone streets and an 800-year-old cathedral, with an abundance of independent shops, alongside big branded, high-street stores. This quirky, historic city is situated on the River Exe where you can enjoy sitting beside the river in many bars and restaurants. With a relaxed vibe, Exeter has all the positives of a big city with the close-knit feeling of a town!
Exeter has a thriving student community and one of the UK’s leading Russell Group Universities. It is also an excellent location for outdoor sports, including water sports and has a competitive football and rugby team. It is a diverse city with plenty on offer for those interested in music and the arts. With a low crime rate and excellent schools, Exeter is a sought-after place to get on to the property ladder as property is more reasonable than some of the larger cities.
There has been a recent buzz about business development in Exeter, with a real focus around the recruitment industry. As the industry continues to flourish, there has been a growing demand for recruiters.
