Trains to Axminster

Built by the London and South West Railway in 1860, Axminster station serves the small town of Axminster in rural Devon. Dating back to around 300 BC, the town lies on two Roman roads and boasts the beautiful Cloakham Lawns, as well as a large sports centre, several churches, a historical library and an array of shops and supermarkets. The station runs regular hourly services to both Exeter St. Davids and London Waterloo, from Platforms 1 and 2 respectively. It has undergone several major redevelopments over the years, culminating in a £20 million refurbishment which saw the creation of a brand new platform, as well as an additional footbridge, waiting area and modern signal box – the old station building was also repurposed as a cafe. December 2012 saw Rail Gourmet establish a satellite centre at the station; if you’re on a morning service to Waterloo, you’ll see their staff offering an ‘at seat’ catering service.
