Fares Train times

The East Devon Line passes through the beautiful Devon countryside as it heads out from Exeter through Cranbrook and Honiton to Axminster. It then continues as the West of England Line onwards to Salisbury and London Waterloo.

Honiton is a traditional market town, full of specialist antiques shops and famous for its lace-making. Axminster is an unspoilt market town internationally renowned for its carpets.

ENGINEERING WORKS

Please note that from Sunday 25th to Friday 30th October 2020 (and also on Sunday 8th November) there will be replacement bus services between Exeter and Honiton to allow a major rail junction to be renewed. Find out more.

The Jurassic Coast

Thanks to onwards bus connections, the line is a gateway to the UNESCO World Heritage Jurassic Coast. At Axminster railway station hop on a bus to Seaton, Lyme Regis or West Bay (where much of the television series Broadchurch was filmed). If you are arriving from the east, another alternative is to stay on the train to Honiton and then take a bus to Sidmouth.
