Getting There
By Car

Exeter Racecourse is located just off the A38 (Exeter to Plymouth), five miles from the end of the M5 southbound. Although clearly signposted from all directions, please note that access is via a sharp turn situated shortly after the brow of Haldon Hill. If you are using a Sat Nav to find us, please use EX6 7XS as the postcode.

Once you have arrived, you will find ample free parking just a short walk from the main entrance.

By Taxi

Depending on your time of travel, a taxi up to the racecourse, from the train station, 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".

 
By Train

There is a direct train link between London Paddington and Exeter St.Davids (journey time approx. 2 hours).  See above for GWR discount information.

By Bus

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 carriage way. 

Due to safety concerns there is no bus stop on the opposite side of the dual carriage way. 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.

 
By Air

Exeter International Airport is located an easy 15 minute drive from the racecourse, just off the A30.
