According to a recent survey, Exeter has been named one of the best places to live in Britain.
The report praised Exeter airport, which has flights to 17 countries, Exeter University’s admission to the Russell Group, the opening of John Lewis department store, and plans to build an Ikea. It also referred to the rugby World Cup, with Exeter Chiefs being chosen as a host venue.
Exeter is “A human-scale city with sea, moors and cream teas”, the report says.
Plymouth and Truro were also commended. However, Bristol took the number one spot, the report describing it as having “one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country, varied and beautiful housing stock, decent schools, buzzy culture and night life and access to some fantastic countryside”.
The report was published in The Sunday Times’ Best Places to Live in Britain, which reviewed cities across the UK.
