About Exeter, UK

Exeter is a city, district and county town of Devon, England.

Exeter is located approximately in 60 km northeast from Plymouth. As many other British cities it was found by the Celts in the times of long ago and reestablished by Romans in the first century CE. Exeter has such notable buildings as the Cathedral, founded in 1050. Also Exeter is proud of the Guildhall, which is the oldest municipal building in England still in use. Guildhall is not merely an ancient monument but remains a busy working building for already 800 years - still in regular use for a variety of civic functions and full meetings of the City Council. Without a doubt visit to Exeter's Underground Passages will be of the most interest for young people. These medieval passages under Exeter High Street were built around 14th century and are unique because no similar system of passages can be explored by the public elsewhere in Britain. They were built to house the pipes that brought fresh water to the city. Among other Exeter sights are Mols Coffee House Historic building in the Cathedral close, The Guild of Tuckers and Weavers, St Nicholas Priory in Mint Lane, "The House That Moved", a 14th century Tudor building, received its name in 1961 when it was moved to its new place, and Parliament Street in the city centre which is one of the narrowest streets in the United Kingdom.
