Getting to and from Exeter
Exeter boasts 3 main stations that students mostly use: Exeter St. David’s railway station, Exeter St. Thomas railway station and Exeter Central railway station. If train is your preferred method of travel, we would recommend you purchasing a 16-25 Railcard, which gives you 1/3 off on travels!
A cheaper alternative to train is coach! Exeter coach station, which is located in the city centre is a popular way for students to save money and travel. The 2 coach companies which run services from Exeter to London (Victoria Coach station) are: National Express and Megabus.
