Eggsciting activities in Exeter this Easter Easter in Exeter

There’s lots going on in Exeter this Easter. With school out, there’s plenty of eggs-citing activities for all the family taking place across the city.

Come rain or shine, the popular Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery (RAMM) is a great place to discover something new and this Easter is no different.

Based on Queen Street in the heart of the city, RAMM has lots of fun in store for the school holidays.

Families can create a fabulous 'dot-print' of their favourite museum object, as well as the chance to make woven paper artwork with the 'Double Elephant Print Workshops'.

Those up for a laugh are urged not to miss the Comic strip capers', where visitors can design a single-page comic strip.

A great way to explore the city and discover its rich history is with a daily, free, Red Coat Guided Tour which set off regularly from the Cathedral Green.

For something completely different – and out of the rain if it’s bucketing down – people can head beneath the city streets and join a fascinating guided tour of Exeter's Underground Passages, the only ones of their type in the UK.

But if it’s sunny or fine, Exeter Quayside is the perfect place for a stroll. Exeter Custom House is right by the waterside. Open daily from 10am to 5pm, the Custom House is one of Exeter’s most iconic and photographed buildings.

Renowned for its sweeping staircase and ornate plaster ceilings, the beautiful building houses a Visitor Centre with lively displays, illustrations, and artefacts that bring the history and development of Exeter’s Quayside to life.

From real cannons and mementos of the cloth trade to audio-visual displays and bespoke commissioned artwork, the Visitor Centre reveals stories from 2000 years of Exeter’s history.

For those wanting to burn off those Easter eggs, calories or a head of steam, then why not go for a swim or get active at one of Exeter’s leisure centres. Find out about sessions and classes at the Exeter Leisure website at

And that’s just a small chocolatey flavour of what’s happening in Exeter over the Easter period. There’s loads more going on it and around the city. To find out more, check out the Visit Exeter website at
