Show all parts of this guide

1. Exeter's strong economy


The Exeter economy benefits by the presence of:

  • organisations providing world class research, education, and training*
  • A growing technology sector, Exeter having featured in Tech Nation’s 2016 and 2017 reports
  • good transport access by road, rail and air
  • high end broadband capacity available
  • outstanding strategically important employment sites and office locations - view the area's Commercial Property Register and Business parks
  • consistently lower rents and rates comparable to other areas
  • loyal, flexible, and cost-effective workforce

 * The most prominent of these is the University of Exeter. This is in the top 1% of leading world universities and is the UK's 25th fastest growing organisation.
