Exeter St. Davids Station (Exeter)

Exeter St. Davids is one of three railway stations serving the ancient city of Exeter in Devon. The others are Exeter Central Station and Exeter St. Thomas Station.

Of the three, this is the city's major station, but is situated just outside the City Centre.

The building dates from 1864, and was a rebuilding of an earlier station. The architect was Henry Lloyd.

The line comes from London by way of Salisbury, Yeovil and Honiton, and continues to Newton Abbot, Truro, Plymouth and Penzance.

Another line comes from the Midlands by way of Bristol, Taunton and Tiverton.

A branch line runs down the estuary of the River Exe to Exmouth.

Yet another line runs to Crediton and Barnstaple.

There was once another line which ran to Newton Abbot by a more rambling route.
