The Custom House Visitor Centre is located right in the centre of Exeter's historic quayside and occupies one of the most historic buildings on the waterfront.

It houses lively displays, illustrations and artefacts will bring the history and development of Exeter’s Quayside to life. As well as models and items from the cloth industry such as “tenter hooks and tillet blocks”, an exciting audiovisual presentation “Exeter, 2000 years of history” highlights Exeter’s history from Roman times until today.

The centre provides tourist information and interesting souvenirs of Exeter, including replica maps, local pottery and a selection of heritage books. Accommodation can also be booked here.
