Trains into Honiton pass through the beautiful East Devon countryside, hugging the banks of the Rivers Otter and Axe. Built in 1860 by the London and South Western Railway, Honiton train station lies on the West of England Main Line and runs an hourly service in both directions between London Waterloo and Exeter St Davids.
Honiton station enjoyed facelifts in 1967 and 2009, before a multi-million-pound overhaul in 2011 saw the station receive an upgraded ticket hall, new toilet facilities, improved disabled access and an adjacent retail unit.
Honiton Hospital is next to Honiton station, and a five-minute walk along residential New Street lands you in the town centre, with independent shops and high-street favourites sitting side-by-side. Come to town on Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday to enjoy the popular street market, or rummage through Honiton's 20 antique shops and two auction houses, which make the town something of an antique hunters' mecca.
