Summer 2016 Excursions Spotlight #9: Exeter

Welcome to the latest installment of our Excursions Spotlight feature!  Today’s focus is on our Exeter excursion.  Exeter is the capital town of the English county of Devon and as such is a major city in the south west of England.  Exeter boasts a rich history, dating all the way back to Roman times and beyond.  During the Roman period, Exeter was known as Isca Dumnoniorum which means “Watertown of the Devonians”.  Exeter was also the most south-westerly fortified town in Roman Britain.

On arrival in Exeter our students will be taken on a tour of the city, with highlights including the beautiful architecture of Exeter Cathedral, Exeter Castle and the narrowest street in the world, Parliament Street, amongst others!  Afterwards, students will have some free time to explore the city of themselves.  Have a look at our gallery below to see some of the beautiful sights of Exeter for yourself :).
