With 140,000 copies of the City Guide published, and the ‘Visit Exeter experience’ being actively promoted through regional advertising and social media, Exeter’s position as a top city break destination is on the rise. Distribution of the Exeter City Guide began in December 2015 across Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Somerset, Wiltshire, Bristol and Bath to key pick-up points including Tourist Offices , service stations, supermarkets, holiday centres, caravan parks, hotel and guesthouses, restaurants, tourist attractions, airports, bus and rail stations.

Exeter’s visitor offering is huge. Rich in history, there is so much to discover, including medieval passages, a fascinating museum, picturesque Quayside and an awe-inspiring cathedral to explore.

In Exeter, there’s a cultural scene to discover that’s as varied and exciting as the city itself. Whether you’re a theatre lover, music buff, foodie or art enthusiast, the Exeter Visitor Guide reveals that Exeter has something for everyone.

Cllr Rosie Denham, Exeter City Council Lead Councillor for Economy and Tourism said: “Tourism is a vital part of the economy of Exeter, the city attracts 2.1 million visitors who then spend £181 million in the local economy. That’s why it is so important to promote Exeter and make sure people know just how easy it is to get here, and how there is something for all budgets and interests. It’s a competitive market, but with so many exciting events happening in Exeter this year, now is the time to show how Exeter provides great value, excellent customer service and a quality experience for all its visitors.”

In 2016, Exeter will be playing host to an exciting programme of events, including Diamond Jubilee celebrations at Exeter University; the Exeter Festival of South West Food & Drink in April; International Photographer of the Year at RAMM; Art Week Exeter; Elton John in concert at Westpoint Arena and a ground-breaking artist project ‘19240 Shrouds of the Somme’. If that isn’t enough, there’s the greatly anticipated Radio 1’s Big Weekend and Let’s Rock Exeter at Powderham Castle; European Rugby 7s at Sandy Park; Deep Water Solo Climbing on the Quay and the popular Exeter Christmas Market on Cathedral Green, to name but a few.
