From Exeter St Davids Train Station – 450 metres walk:
Opposite the station entrance and car park, you will see a Premier Inn. First, walk towards it along the pavement and cross Bonhay Rd at the pedestrian crossing. Next, turn left and walk 10 metres, and immediately on your right is a footpath with an archway / sign reading: To City Centre. Follow the footpath up hill and at the top, turn right and continue along the road. At the mini roundabout, stay to the right and use the crossing to cross the road. Once on the other side, turn right and continue 125 metres. You will see Townhouse Exeter on your left, just past the Church Path.
Alternatively Bus ‘H’ and ’54’ from St Davids Station stops at ‘College’ stop, adjacent St Davids Church.
We recommend you do not follow smart phone directions which take you up Peep Lane, further along Bonhay Rd.

Exit the station and turn right (Queen St). Follow the pavement all the way to the Clock Tower roundabout. Just before the roundabout, cross over the zebra crossing and go straight down Richmond Road in front of you (there is a fish & chip shop on the corner and then a hairdresser to the left). Go to the end of Richmond Road and turn right at the laundrette – this is St Davids Hill. Walk 125 metres and you will see Townhouse Exeter on your right, next to the Church Path.
