Half term family fun

This half term, you don’t have to go far to find ways to keep the whole family entertained. Here at Princesshay we have a whole host of fun ideas for you to enjoy!

Jubilee Street Party

If there’s one event you won’t want to miss this summer, it’s Exeter’s Jubilee Street Party! Marking the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, this all-day celebration will take place across the city on Thursday 2nd June, focused primarily on the High Street. But, if you’re looking for a leisurely way to enjoy the event, why not sit back and refresh with a drink at our Mojito Beach Bar? We’ll have live music to entertain you from the Exeter Jazz Orchestra, (pictured below) who are performing at 11am and 12.15pm, and the Exeter Railway Band at 1pm.

Pick up a picnic!

We love to eat alfresco during the warmer months, and luckily, here at Princesshay we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to outside dining. But, did you know that many of our restaurants also have takeout options? So, grab yourself a picnic bench at Broadwalk Gardens or next to Princesshay Square, bring a basket and fill your boots with delicious treats for the whole family. And, the beauty of having all of this choice under one roof is that you don’t even have to eat the same thing! Take your pick(nic) from Nando’s, Meat59, Chandos, Wagamama, Yo! Sushi, Slim Chickens and Costa.

Mojito Beach Bar

If you enjoyed our Mojito Beach Bar last year, you’ll be delighted to hear that it’s back again this summer! The perfect way to conjure up those holiday feels, the Beach Bar is open from Thursday 26 May – Monday 29 August, 10am – 10pm daily.

Complete with real sand, beach-hut style thatched umbrellas, cocktails and mocktails, plus palm trees and live music, staycationers can enjoy all the beach vibes in the heart of Exeter this summer.

Bath bomb masterclass!

Bath time needn’t be a bore! Make sure your little ones look forward to their next soak by taking them along to a bath bomb masterclass in store at Lush!

Bath bomb kits are also available to buy in store to make at a later date. Pop in to find out more! 

Busy Bees

We understand that shopping with little ones in tow can be a little tiring… to say the least! So, we’ve created a happy child-friendly oasis in the centre of Princesshay for kids to enjoy while you take a minute out to relax and regain your energy! Our new Busy Bees area contains stools and bean bags, a selection of books, LEGO Duplo play cubes, an activity table and a craft trolley for colouring in. Have a play, read a book, draw something fun or simply sit and watch the world go by!
