Throughout the October Half Term school holidays, there will be special tours of Exeter’s famous medieval Underground Passages. Children are invited to explore under the city’s streets on guided tours and discover ingredients for magic spells. Using the ingredients found, the young adventurers are challenged to concoct their own magic spell and enter it into a competition with the opportunity to win one of many fantastic prizes. Witches and Wizards Tours will be taking place between October 23 to 29.
On Saturday and Sunday October 30 and 31, the tour guides will be running special Gory Story Tours, highlighting some of the more unsavoury tales from Exeter’s past. Children can have a go at writing their own Gory Story and again have the chance to win a fantastic prize.
A visit to Exeter’s Underground Passages also includes an opportunity to experience an exhibition packed full of interactive exhibits, archaeological finds and a full scale passages model. Access for children under five years, wheelchairs and pushchairs is to the exhibition only. Booking is essential.
