With more frequent trains every Sunday, why not head to Exmouth’s fantastic Kite Festival this weekend?
The festival is on 10.30am to 5pm on both Saturday and Sunday (27th & 28th August), with the organisers promising “spectacular flying displays, aerial kite fighting battles, mass ascents of artistic kites, and breathtaking synchronised routines, flown to music.” Keep an eye out for flying dragons, octopi, mermaids and more.
Where’s it held?
The festival takes place at the Imperial Recreation Ground, less than a quarter of a mile from Exmouth station (map).
How much does it cost?
The return fare from Exeter Central or Exeter St Davids is just £4.30 for adults (with 5-15 year-olds half price and under 5s free). Trains from Exeter Central are now half-hourly through most of the day, and the journey takes 25-35 minutes. Entry to the Kite Festival is £3 for adults (all going to local causes), with under 16s free. Find out more on the Kite Festival’s website.
