Getting to the Civic Centre on foot, by bike, bus or train
We suggest that visitors to our offices and facilities in the city centre should travel on foot, by bike, or by public transport wherever possible to help avoid city centre congestion.
If you need to drive, please see Getting to the Civic Centre by car (including park and ride) .
Travelling by Train
Exeter has good train services from London, Birmingham, Bristol and Plymouth. Trains from London (Paddington or Waterloo), Bristol, Birmingham and Plymouth all call at Exeter St Davids station, as do all local services. Exeter Central station is served by trains from London Waterloo, and many local services.
Exeter Central is closer to the Civic Centre, being about ten minutes' walk. Leave by the ramps (rather than the stairs or lift) to exit on to New North Road, where you turn right. Stay on the same side of the road past three sets of traffic lights, then the Civic Centre entrance is on your right. See Maps 2 and 3 at Maps - How to get to the Civic Centre.
Exeter St Davids is 10 minutes from the Civic Centre by bus. Take Route H and get off in the High Street. Walk ahead as far as the traffic lights, then turn right into Paris Street. The Civic Centre is on your right after the next set of traffic lights. See Maps 2 and 3 at Maps - How to get to the Civic Centre.
Alternatively, from St Davids, use connecting trains to Exeter Central and follow the walking directions above.
There are taxi ranks outside both Exeter St Davids and Exeter Central stations. For returning from the Civic Centre to either of the stations, taxis can be found in Sidwell Street - see Map 3 at Maps - How to get to the Civic Centre.
