Meteorological Office

The Meteorological Office (or Met Office), which has its headquarters at Exeter in Devon, is responsible for the UK's national weather service.

Established in 1854 under Robert FitzRoy as a service to mariners, the Met Office later became part of the Ministry of Defence. In 2003 it moved to its present location from Bracknell in Berkshire.
