Family Friendly Exeter April Round Up

Family Friendly Exeter April Round Up

We loved the warmer weather in April and certainly made the most of a sunny Easter to enjoy trips to the park and the beach.  We also fitted in some fabby car free adventures and a lot of chocolate.

I’m delighted that the traffic to the site is SHOOTING up!  We had four (yes FOUR) times as many page views in April as we did in December.  I’m so pleased that there are so many parents in Exeter who are finding Exeter Baby Activities so useful.

Early in the month, Natalie Trice shared her favourite places to go in Exeter.  As Natalie has only recently joined us in the South West, it is great to see the region through fresh eyes.  Natalie takes us to her favourite cafes, Exeter Cathedral, RAMM, the Quayside and Central Library.

I had lots of lovely messages (thank you everyone who took the time to email me, it really is appreciated) about my 3 Fantastic Car Free Family Adventures in Exeter post.  Sometimes it’s the journey there that makes a day out so special and when you have amazing train routes, the UK’s oldest ferry and smugglers’ tunnels to choose from, you are bound to have a perfect day.
