What to do in Exeter: family attractions

Exeter is the perfect place for a day trip with the entire family. The vast variety of family-friendly attractions makes it difficult to choose where to go! We’ll make it easy for you to decide by showing you our favourites and describing them briefly. Let’s start with the amazing pick for animal lovers – The Donkey Sanctuary. 

1. The Donkey Sanctuary

Don’t miss out on this must-see, completely free-to-visit, children-friendly place. Donkeys are known to be gentle and welcoming to affection. Petting and feeding encouraged! If you fall in love with one of them, you can even adopt it to help the Sanctuary. There’s a store there from which all the profit is donated to charity organizations helping donkeys all around the world. Bring along your whole family(you can even bring your dog – just make sure it’s friendly and held on a leash) and enjoy the company of endearing animals!

2. Crealy Theme Park & Resort

Designated not only for summer time, this theme park offers amusement all year round (excluding the water rides in winter). Spoil yourself with luxury hot tub lodges while the kids enjoy various rides and water attractions. There’s something for everyone there, from the crazy Twister to the Victorian Carousel. You can search for a hidden treasure and dinosaur bones as well as relax with meerkats at their manor. Many fantastic events are held there such as the Eggo-Saurus Dino Hunt in April. If you enjoy camping, the resort offers a camping site with all the things necessary for a successful stay for both newbies and experts.
