Hot Air Balloon Flight from Exeter

Devon’s green hills, rugged coast, and windswept beaches are among England’s most beautiful, but the most spectacular views are from above. Float overhead on a 1-hour hot air balloon ride, watch the sunrise or sunset over Devon, then celebrate with a champagne toast.

We visited Tiverton Museum recently - for the first time in about 30 yrs... What a marvellous place it is now - after its huge extension & refurb. What transformation! Fantastic displays of everything from ancient farm equipment to a giant net-making loom, from the Heathcoat factory. And, of course standing on the footplate of the Tivvy Bumper steam engine is a wonderful treat! (You can even press a button to hear steam noises - and pull the chain to hear that iconic whistle!) If you are visiting the area - or haven't visited the museum for a while - I am sure you will find the £5.50 entrance fee very good value - enjoy!!

Thank you very much for your review Martin! We're delighted that you enjoyed the museum so much. The museum underwent major changes 20 years, and we have plans to make further improvements in the next few years. We hope you'll be back to see us again soon (definitely before another 30 years go by!)

Looked a bit small and thought £5.50 entrance fee a bit steep. However, it keeps on going. After walking around the two floors you then go outside where there's a steam engine in a hall with many other artefacts. Re-thought the fee and reckon it's very good value for money.

Popped along here thinking we would be in and out in an hour, but ended up spend nearly 3 fascinating hours here. Covering a range of aspects concerning Devon - and of course Tiverton, there is a massive range of exhibits history and information to be found here, including the famous Tivvy Bumper - the lovely little steam engine. This is definitely worth a visit if you are in the area, check for opening times etc on line. There are Loos on site, and a small gift shop. We found the staff here very friendly and helpful on our visit to this cracking little Museum. . Price is approx. 6.00pp

Went with my family, 5 adults & 2 children (under 3). Very reasonable price for entry (children are free) and so much to look at! There were plenty of things for children to look at and play with and the yard was fabulous! And the train at the end was very enjoyable!
