About Exeter

As the capital city of Devon, Exeter is one of the country’s most vibrant and historic cities with a rich and diverse means of business and commerce. In the last decade, Exeter has experienced a period of strong growth, outperforming other cities across the UK and becoming a beacon for business in the South West.



Science and Technology: 

Home to the Met Office and Exeter Science Park, Exeter is leading the way with data and technical science, with a supercomputer currently being built by the Met Office.  Currently at 30% of its intended capacity it is already Europe's largest Operational HPC.



The city boasts fantastic links with the rest of the country and further afield. It is the only city in South West of England with two separate railway services to London as well as a daily air service to London City Airport.



Education is at the forefront within the city with Exeter University entering the Global 100 in 2015 and Exeter College, named as UK College of the Year 2012.



Exeter has the highest productive growth of any city in the UK (ONS data) and in 2016 it was reported that this city has the lowest unemployment level since records began. In the last 15 years 30,000 new jobs were created in Exeter alone.



In 2015, Exeter built 2% of all new homes in the country.
