Exeter's Underground Passages, Devon


  • Located in Exeter, Devon, South West England, England
  • Telephone: 01392 665887
  • Medieval passageways running underneath the city of Exeter
  • A unique experience. 'No similar system of passages can be explored by the public elsewhere in Britain' (source: guidebook available on site)
  • Great fun, especially for kids. You watch a short film outlining the history of the tunnels before putting on a hard hat for a guided tour
  • The tunnels were built to supply water to the city. There's a visitor centre with plenty of information boards, a reconstruction of the tunnels and a small section of the original medieval lead piping through which the water flowed
  • If it's raining, this is a top rainy day activity for Exeter, Devon and South West England
  • Whilst you're in the city, we'd recommend visits to Exeter Cathedral and Exeter Historic Quayside
  • In the local area, explore the East Devon AONB and Dartmoor National Park. Read our guides for recommendations specific to those areas
