Exeters Underground Passages

View the days out leaflet for Exeters Underground Passages

Exeter’s Underground Passages were built in the 14th & 15th centuries to bring a supply of fresh drinking water into the city. Before taking a guided tour underground, visitors pass through an exciting interpretation centre packed full of interactive displays, including a talking figure of a medieval man, a high-speed video fly-through the Passages, a full size model of a section of the Passages and artefacts from the Princesshay archaeological dig.

A visit to Exeter’s Underground Passages includes a 10 minute film presentation, a 25 minute tour underground and an opportunity to explore the exhibition.

Exeter is the only city in the UK to have underground passages of this type and guided tours have taken place here since the 1930s. Today the passages are lit throughout, but still hold a fascination to all who enter.
