New this month

SWR is once again operating a full hourly service between Exeter, Honiton and London Waterloo. Please check SWR’s website for details of any service changes due to engineering work or strike action.

The latest information can be found on our Timetables page.

The planters at the station have been adopted by a number of local community groups. Each decorated planter is accompanied by a plaque that explains what the group does to support the community.
