UK Outlook for Sunday 27 Jul 2014 to Tuesday 5 Aug 2014:

Largely fine and dry weather is expected across southern parts of the UK initially, although isolated showers could affect the southeast, while in the north a band of showery rain may edge southwards through Sunday. It will remain warm or very warm for many, and perhaps locally hot in places, although sea breezes should keep some coastal parts a little fresher. During next week, lengthy periods of fine, dry and warm weather are likely. Occasional rain and brisk winds may affect northern parts with temperatures here returning closer to average. The last part of this period should be similar, although there are indications that the more unsettled weather in the north may extend further south at times.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 6 Aug 2014 to Wednesday 20 Aug 2014:

The recent generally settled conditions are expected to persist into the first part of this period, with mostly fine and dry weather continuing across more southern parts. Towards the north, more in the way of cloud and sporadic outbreaks of rain are likely. Temperatures should remain above average for most, possibly turning locally hot for a time in the south. Later in the period, a change towards more unsettled conditions overall is looking likely with a higher risk of rain or showers, although there will also be some drier, brighter interludes.

Exeter information

The city of Exeter is located in south-west England in the county of Devon. Settled on the river Exe, it has a population of approximately 120,000 and acts as Devon County Council’s administrative centre with excellent national and international transport links.

The city’s motto, semper fidelis (‘always loyal’) is said to have been adopted in the late 16th century when Queen Elizabeth I gave thanks to its citizens for putting up a monetary gift with which the English built ships to defeat the Spanish Armada. Before the Industrial Revolution gave rise to the rapid growth of other cities, Exeter was vital to the country’s trade, with its fertile land and accessible waterways allowing for a huge industry at the time. Exeter is now better known for its reputation in the service sector, with a 2001 study naming the city as one of the most profitable locations in the UK from which to start a business.

Given its healthy transport links to other regions of England, supported by Exeter airport serving a variety of British and European destinations, it’s no surprise that Exeter also enjoys a thriving tourist trade. Along with its proximity to the rural treasures on Devon and Cornwall, Exeter is well-known for its status as a Fairtrade Town, having pledged to promote its lifestyle and products. Along with the great retail facilities, all of the above is what makes Exeter an ideal base for holidaymakers from which to explore their surroundings.

The Exeter Rowing Regatta is a very popular event during the summer and supporters from all over the south-west come to Exeter Quay to see the finest boat racers in competition. Located close to seaside restaurants and an outdoor market, it’s an ideal way to spend a summer’s day — the quayside also has many souvenir shops and even the odd antique dealer.

If you’re interested in seeing the sights of Exeter’s landmarks then a Red Coat Guided Tour is highly recommended. This approximately 90-minute walking tour will show off all the unique features of Exeter’s history as well as providing tourists with spoken histories of events gone by. It’s a great way to spend time in the town.

Visitors are also attracted to Exeter Racecourse, which plays host to some of Britain’s finest thoroughbreds, as well as St James Park, the home of Exeter FC.
