Exeter is a historic city in Devon, England, 60 km north-east of Plymouth and 110 km south-west of Bristol. Located on the River Exe, it dates back to Roman times, when it represented the most southwesterly fortified settlement in the country. The population of Exeter is about 115,000.
Car hire in Exeter is a convenient option for travel in the south-west of England. The M5 motorway to Bristol and Birmingham originates at Exeter, linking to the M4 to London and South Wales at Bristol. For a more direct route to London, the older A30 road connects to the A303 and M3. To the west, the A38 brings you to Plymouth and south-east Cornwall, and the A30 continues on to north and west Cornwall.
Exeter itself is a fascinating town, anchored by the cathedral, which was established in the early 12th century and was converted to an Anglican church at the time of the 16th-century Reformation. St. Nicholas Priory was home to the Benedictine monks for more than 400 years, and it's now a museum. The local dark red sandstone gives its name to the ruined Rougemont Castle and the surrounding park.
