Am I able to take a train from Paddington London to Exeter London then to Exmouth London?

Asked by xTheDreamer (881points) July 2nd, 2009

I was wondering if that was possible because we’re going to visit a friend that lives in Exmouth London but our hotel is in the area of Paddington London.
Or how do we have to take the train to Exeter &/or Exmouth London?

I’m assuming you mean Exeter and Exmouth England, not London. You always used to be able to take the train from Paddington Station in London to Exeter and then a local train to Exmouth, but since Britrail was broken up in the 1980s, much has changed for the worse in British train travel. I would Google it and see if you can find out what trainline is servicing the Southwest (county Devon) where Exeter and Exmouth are located. It is likely to be a journey of several hours.

Just did the search for you. There are several daily trains from Paddington to Exeter; it takes about 3 hours and costs about $150. I found a site at www.raileurope.com that had the information. There may not be a local train to Exmouth any more but it is not far from Exeter. There is probably a bus or maybe your friend could pick you up.

Exeter and Exmouth are about 200 miles away from London, k? Hardly think that classifies them as part of London. Get your facts straight. Schoolboy error.
