Town mayor, councillor Steve Gazzard was on hand for the reopening and town crier, Roger Bourgein gave a cry across The Strand to mark the occasion.

The Tourist Information office is based in the town centre and visitors to Exmouth can find flyers and booklets about what attractions and events are available in the town.

Veronica Boatman, tourism officer for Exmouth Town Council, said: “The office and working methods have been adapted to keep volunteers and service users safe during the pandemic.

“An outcome from the risk assessment and our Covid promise has resulted in a minor change to the summer opening hours, and the winter hours - which start on November 2 - will be reviewed nearer the time.”

The Tourist Information office is open Monday to Saturday 10am until 4pm but is closed between 12.30pm and 1.30pm.
