The town of Exmouth brightens every October with the arrival of the Exmouth Illuminated Carnival. As well as the cheery carnival itself, the day includes plenty of fun for the whole family. Exmouth Carnival day includes entertainment, activities, lots of opportunity for fancy dress and live music too.
If you’re in Exmouth during the day you’ll hear exactly what’s on the carnival programme from the town crier, and regular highlights are face painting, competitions and the chance to buy locally made crafts and souvenirs. Exmouth makes a pretty backdrop for any event, and it comes into its own as the illuminated carnival dazzles the crowds each year.
If you’re attending the Exmouth Carnival from a Lympstone holiday cottage, it’s best not to drive as many of the roads will be closed off. Exmouth is just one stop on the train, or around an hour’s walk from Lympstone.
