Quay House Visitor Centre provides tourist information, Quayside treasure hunts, an accommodation booking service and a gift shop selling local pottery, replica maps and a wide range of local interest books.
The Quay House was built in 1680-1 at the height of Exeter's woollen cloth industry to unload and store goods brought up the canal on lighter barges. Today the history and development of Exeter's Quayside is brought to life with lively displays, illustrations and artefacts. There is also the opportunity to see "Exeter - 2,000 years of history," an exciting audio-visual presentation highlighting Exeter's history from Roman times to the present day.

The Quay House Visitor Centre is the first attraction in Devon to be awarded Visit England's PIQAS Award (Place of Interest Quality Assurance Scheme.)
