Dating from 14th century, these medieval passages under Exeter High Street are a unique ancient monument: no similar system of passages can be explored by the public elsewhere in Britain. The Passages have long exercised a fascination over local...more

An interesting visit on a Thursday afternoon with a very knowledgeable and clearly spoken tour guide. It's a piece of history that would normally be lost but is being maintained for us to experience.

Having been to Exeter multiple times and never been here we thought we would do the tour and we were not disappointed.
Tour guide was fantastic both with his knowledge and with my 2 kids.
The history of the tunnels is fascinating and we thoroughly...More
I have been meaning to go to this venue for about 5 years.
Today I did the underground passages guided tour.

We pre-booked the tickets and arrived about 30 minutes before our tour start time. Plenty of time to learn about the Underground Passages before the tour started. A short video explained the history of the passages before we donned out hard hats and went for...More
