The best part of Exeter are the roads leading out of it.
I will always love Exeter.
Nightlife is ok -- it is a city so there are places to go but nothing amazing.
I love Exeter.
Exeter is not that great as the nightlife is pretty sh*tty. If I were you I would head on down to Torquay. That is so much better than Exeter. It’s amazing!
Don’t even think about coming to Exeter. The nightlife is rubbish -- all the clubs are filled with little kids. Shopping is great but beware of pickpockets. Tourists can be seen from a mile away. Just be careful when you next go down Topsham Road -- it’s been known for several hit and runs. I advise you to stay in if you decide to come to Exeter and lock your doors. You will be safer. One thing that I must say is great about Exeter is all the good looking lads!

I grew up in Exeter. It's a mostly pretty town. The Cathedral is lovely, the Quay is worth a visit and the V&A museum is good for a couple of hours.
Ignore the comment about the drunks; it's not true. The nightlife is great and all you ever see are good natured students.
The shops are better than you'd expect for a city of 100,000 as it's the regional hub.
It's otherwise pretty small, and if you're in the region don't spend more than a day or two here - the countryside around is the main draw.
If you like beautiful buildings, go to Exeter Cathedral. It's amazing!
I live in exter and despite the drunks, it is a fun, enjoyable place, and is nice for walking the dogs along the quay at sunset...
Exeter is wicked. If you fancy a good night out, go to Arena and then Paradise Tandoori. They have the best naan kebabs I have ever tasted in my life!
Steeped in history and within easy reach of both the coast and the rugged Dartmoor National Park, the university city of Exeter is also a interesting stop-off point for those intending to visit the rest of Devon or Cornwall.
Its centrepiece is the Gothic St. Peter’s Cathedral; other interesting historical places to see are the Roman city walls and a network of underground tunnels built in medieval times. To discover more about this two-thousand-year-old city, there are free daily tours run by the Red Coat guides. These walking tours cover different themes ranging from waterside visits to the canal and quayside to nighttime "murder and mayhem" tours about the city’s more gruesome past.
There are a few options in terms of Exeter hostels. Whether you want to stay in the heart of the action or further afield but closer to nature, you should be able to find an Exeter hostel to suit your needs. Either way, hostels in and around Exeter all tend to be fairly accessible for the centre and onward transport links.
The history Quay is a lively spot on a sunny day, with several bars and restaurants overlooking the River Exe. It’s also home to the bizarre and quaint Butt’s Ferry -- a seventeenth-century tradition in which a ferryman pulls a platform of people from one riverbank to the other using cables stretched across the water. There are good cycle trails along the river and bikes and canoes are available to hire from the quayside.
Following the River Exe and its adjacent canal will lead you to Exminster Marshes Nature Reserve and continuing on, about eight miles out of town, lies Powderham Castle. Following the estuary for a couple more miles southwards will lead you toward the English Channel.
Exeter is well connected with an airport servicing a number of European destinations. It has two train stations, Exeter Central and St. Davids, which link London and Penzance. For those preferring to go by road, the bargain intercity Megabus has routes to Exeter, as do National Express coaches. There is a good local bus service operating here, too.
