Travelling by rail?

The stadium is served by St James Park rail station, a few minutes’ walk from the ground.  The station lies on the Avocet Line (First Great Western trains), which runs from Exeter St David’s to Exmouth, also calling at Exeter Central. Trains from Paddington arrive at Exeter St David’s. Note that the last midweek London-bound train departs Exeter St David’s at 20:52. This trip is thus not possible unless you return on the Wednesday. 


Facilities for away fans

Visiting fans are mostly accommodated in the St James Road Terrace at one end of the ground. This has no cover and is open to the elements. Some seats are available in the grandstand. This is covered but does have some supporting pillars that may affect your view. There is street parking, but quite a way from the ground as there is a local residents’ parking scheme in operation. 


Around the stadium

There is a Social Club at the ground, which usually allows in away supporters. There is a good choice of hostelries in the city centre. The ‘Wells Tavern’ on Well Street is located close to the ground and is popular with away fans. Also coming recommended are the ‘Duke of York’ and the ‘Amber Rooms’ in Sidwell Street, and ‘The Victoria' on Victoria Road. Another option is the “Bowling Green” PH, on Blackboy Road about a quarter of a mile from the ground. This is a friendly establishment popular with both home and away fans.
