Families spending time in Exeter during the Easter Holidays will be able to take part in a free Easter Egg Hunt around the city’s Cathedral.

Available until the 21st April 2017, children and their parents will be able to explore the Cathedral, counting the eggs that have been hidden all around the inside of the 900 year old building. A chocolate prize will be available at the end, with the opportunity to enter a prize draw to win an Easter treat.
