Are you arriving by bus, train or taxi? See below our travel advice. Exeter is also lucky enough to have a local airport, see details below.
A complimentary bus service runs to Exeter Racecourse from Exeter St. Davids and Exeter City Bus Station every raceday. Please note this service is available on a strictly first come, first served basis.
There is also a bus (Bus 39) which goes from Exeter Bus Station to Newton Abbot via Exeter Racecourse.
The Exeter Racecourse stop is between the ‘Countess Wear Roundabout’ and ‘Chudleigh Memorial’ and is just opposite the Route 5 restaurant on the A38 dual carriageway.
Due to safety concerns, there is no bus stop on the opposite side of the dual carriageway. To return to Exeter City Centre from the Racecourse you have to get on a 39 bus to Chudleigh Memorial and change there to get on another 39 bus back to the city centre.
Depending on your time of travel, a taxi up to the racecourse will take about 25 minutes – to receive an exclusive discount from our preferred partners on a taxi fare to or from the Racecourse, book Apple Taxis on 01392 666666 or email and quote "EX1".
There is also an Apple Taxi Raceday Pick-Up point located at the bottom of the racecourse’s main car park.
Taxis will be lining up there from the last race so if you intend on travelling home by taxi, please make your way to the Pick-Up point to join the queue.
There is a direct train link between London Paddington to Exeter St. Davids train station. We are pleased to offer a complimentary coach service bringing you straight from the station to the racecourse.
Exeter is around a two-hour train journey from London Paddington.
Exeter International Airport is a 15 minute drive from the racecourse, just off the A30.
With prior permission, helicopters can land on the course on racedays – please call Jade Foyle, on 01392 832599 for further information.
