Trains to Starcross

Located on the Exeter to Plymouth line, Devon's Starcross train station offers a diversity of destinations which include an historic city, picturesque towns and a wealth of seaside options. Served by Great Western trains, the highest frequency services depart hourly and run between Exmouth and Paignton via Exeter but there is also a once-per-day service to Bath, Bristol, Penzance, Plymouth and London too. The railway station at Starcross, which dates from 1846, sits right on the River Exe's estuary shore which makes for a picturesque setting. It is also home to the most intact example of Devon's 19th century engine houses which were used to power the atmospheric trains of that era.

Refreshment can be found with a short stroll to either the Atmospheric Railway Inn or the vintage seaside-themed Galleon Inn which functions as both pub and tearoom. Just 2 km away is the imposing 14th century fortified manor of Powderham Castle set within a lovely park which can be reached with one of the several bus services which operate directly from Starcross train station. A journey of just 12 minutes by train brings passengers to the historic city of Exeter with its city wall walks, majestic cathedral, the 900-year-old St Nicholas Priory with its impressive Tudor interiors and the chance to tour medieval tunnels. For those looking for a day at the seaside the large coastal town of Teignmouth is just 13 minutes away by train, while Torquay and Paignton – part of the English Riviera – can be reached with journeys of 32 or 39 minutes respectively. The 2 miles of Exmouth's beach are within 20 minutes reach thanks to the direct access from the station's second platform with the Starcross to Exmouth ferry pier.
