Uncover 2000 years of Exeter’s history with audio-visual presentations and fascinating displays at the new Custom House Visitor Centre on the city’s Quayside.
The Custom House was built in 1680 at the height of Exeter's woollen cloth industry. Today it is a fascinating Visitor Centre and the meeting point for Exeter Red Coat Guided Tours.
Renowned for its sweeping staircase and ornate plaster ceilings, this beautiful building brings to life the history and development of Exeter's Quayside through lively displays, illustrations and artefacts. There is also the opportunity to watch "Exeter - 2,000 years of history," an exciting audio-visual presentation highlighting Exeter's history from Roman times to the present day.
The Custom House Visitor Centre provides tourist information, quayside treasure hunts, an accommodation booking service and a gift shop selling local pottery, replica maps and a wide range of local interest books.
