Study English in the historical city of Exeter.
Exeter has been an important city within the county of Devon since the Roman times, when a military base was built here in 50 AD, growing quickly into an important settlement. As a result, the city center has many historical monuments to explore, including the city walls, medieval churches and the Guildhall (said to be the oldest municipal building in England). The city’s gothic cathedral, built in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, is the most popular attraction. It lies in the center of the city, surrounded by picturesque cobbled streets and the attractive gardens of the Cathedral Green.
Contemporary Exeter combines these ancient buildings with bustling shopping centers, The University of Exeter, and an attractive quayside filled with pubs, restaurants and live music. Having a high student population ensures a lively nightlife, but from the city it is easy to escape into the surrounding countryside for a spot of walking or cycling. The county of Devon is full of pretty traditional villages and seaside towns, with plenty of great spots for surfing, climbing, fishing, sailing, horseback riding and much more. Taking an English course in Exeter is sure to be an unforgettable experience.
