Visit Exeter – Just a Short Scenic Train Ride Away!

8 July 2022

Exeter is not only our county capital but it is also one of the most vibrant, attractive and historically interesting cities in England. Torquay train station is only a short 10 minute walk from TLH Resort and once you’ve boarded the train, the scenic and coastal route is not to be missed.

Catch the Train from just 10 minutes away!

Torquay Train station is just 1 short 10-minute walk from TLH Leisure Resort. You can get the train directly to Exeter from just £7.20 for adults over 16 and from £3.60 for children under 15. The  journey takes you through Newton Abbot and then onto Teignmouth and Dawlish Warren. We may be biased but we think this is the most scenic railway journey there is! There a few stations in Exeter but we recommend you alight at Exeter Central. FIND OUT MORE
