Exeter is Devon’s county town and the administrative capital of Britain’s southwest peninsula. This historic cathedral city is known for its good blend of culture, education, retail, arts, and history. Today, Exeter serves as the commercial and service centre for the largely agricultural hinterland. The city has excellent facilities for tourists, although the tourist scene does not really dominate. Yet, it gets voted regularly as among the top 3 cities in the UK to live.

The Exeter St Davids railway station is the principal station of Exeter. It lies along the line of London Paddington to Cornwall, with an hourly service coming from the London Paddington station in most of the day. There are also several smaller stations serving local and regional services, including St. James’s Park, St Thomas, and Central. The city centre is only a 5-min walk from the central station.
