Experience Exeter!

Want to know the Exeter and Cornish hotspots? Read our brochure then find out more below!

1 - Exeter Quay

Exeter’s historic quayside hosts eateries, craft shops, street food stalls, water activities and a climbing centre – a perfect place to catch up with friends!

2 - Exeter Cathedral

Exeter’s Cathedral is one of the oldest (and most beautiful) in England and is a fine example of Gothic architecture. It holds the Exeter Book, which is the largest known collection of Old English literature still in existence. The Cathedral Green is at the heart of Exeter.

3 - Eden Project

The Eden Project in Cornwall is nestled in a huge crater. Here, massive Biomes house the largest rainforest in captivity.

4 - The Old Firehouse

Popular with both students and Exeter locals alike, The Old Firehouse pub has character, a great atmosphere, good drinks and great food! (It’s also reportedly the inspiration for Harry Potter’s Leaky Cauldron – you’ll see why when you visit)

5 - The Forum

The Forum is the 'heart' of the Streatham Campus! Opened by HRM The Queen in 2012, it houses all of our student services in one place - the library, Career Zone, eateries, two banks and lecture theatres.

6 - St Luke's Campus

The St Luke's Campus hosts our Sports and Health Science students, along with Medical School programmes. Those with a keen interest in history may wish to look at the photo gallery conatining images of the Quad and Cloisters - full of history.

7 - Sports Park

Exeter’s Sports Park on the Streatham Campus has a state of the art fitness centre and is a hub for British Universities and Colleges (BUCS) Sport events (for which Exeter came 5th overall in 2015/6). Did you know that we were awarded The Times and Sunday Times Sports University of the Year in 2016?

8 - Environment and Sustainability

The environment and sustainability underpin much of the ethos of the Penryn Campus. The Science and Engineering Research Support Facility (SERSF) builds upon the £30 million Environment and Sustainability Institute (ESI), putting the University and Cornwall at the forefront of research into the solutions to problems of environmental change.

9- Arts and Culture

Behind Northcote House on the Streatham Campus sits the Sculpture Walk. The University supports, promotes and develops arts and culture activity in order to deliver a public programme of arts, to increase student engagement and to showcase research.

10 - St Michael’s Mount

St Michael's Mount is a small tidal island in Mount's Bay, Cornwall. It’s linked by a man-made causeway of granite, passable in low-tide!

The Minack Theatre

The Minack is Cornwall's famous open-air theatre. It's perched on the cliffs high above the Atlantic Ocean and they put on a full programme of drama, musicals and opera - not to me missed.
