getting there

by bloodymaryj

I'm flying into Gatwick and looking for the easiest way to get to Exeter

RE: getting there

You can get train to Reading, then change for train to Exeter st Davids, I think it takes a little over 3 hours.

I would suggest that you can either take the Gatwick Express (train) to Paddington Train Station and from there you can get a train straight to Exeter. Alternatively, you can get a coach (using National Express - A Bus company) right from Gatwick to Exeter.

Look at uk for train timetables, and for coaches. I'd go by train, more expensive but far, far faster.

Here you go, avoiding central London by going via Reading from Gatwick by train is much the fastest and easiest way to get there. Trains are expensive, but if you get a railcard, the prices reduce considerably.

If cost isn't an option, there are direct flights between Gatwick & Exeter but the chaepest I could see them for was £250! These are easily found using the website.

If cost is an option then there are National Express (our version of greyhounds but not quite in same league) buses that travel from the terminal to Exeter. An economy return was showing at £40.50 with the only limitation of not travelling on Fridays and buying one day in advance. Cut and paste the link below;

Middle option is the train options as already covered in previous postings.

Hope that helps


Travel Tips for Exeter

Trendy or Trend Setting?

by johngayton about Tiger Bills

This is the latest addition (Nov 2007) to Exeter's ever expanding culinary scene and a very imressive one it is too! I just happened to be passing on my way to my Iron Bridge barbers' and noticed that what was formerly a closed-down Irish-theme bar suddenly had a new coat of paint (or should I say a new coat of stripes!). A quick glance at the menu was enough to convince my faintly-rumbling belly that in fact it was time for lunch.

The name "Tiger Bills" fits the proverbial bill (of fare) with the menu being composed of two entirely different halves - the Tiger being a comprehensive selection of Thai classics whilst the Bill is based on an equally classic American grill menu. Niether the twain meet tho', in as much as this isn't a "fusion" place, but there is nothing to stop you mixing and matching between the two halves - for instance you could start with "Thod muin plar" and have a New York Strip for your main. The Thai and American Combos also look good and would be great for larger parties in a Greek meze-fashion.

Service was absolutely excellent, decor a little on the trendy side for my personal taste and the food towards the expensive side - HA! but seeing as it was early days they were offering a 20% discount from Sunday to Wednesday and even tho' it was Thursday extended it for me, well that was the gratuity sorted then! In addition to the main menu there is also a short specials menu of Thai dishes and for those that know me it will come as no surprise that that was what I headed straight for: Panang Goong with Jasmine Rice - good sized, perfectly-cooked king prawns in a flavoursome, slightly hot, creamy curry sauce with green beans and fresh lime leaves, accompanied by spot-on sticky rice and washed down with a bottle of Japanese Asahi beer (UK brewed unfortunately). Yep, an excellent lunch :)

The Quayside

by Gillianina

Exeter's quayside features a unique collection of historic industrial buildings and warehouses. The main attraction being the brick built Custom House. This was the first purpose built custom house in the Country - constructed during the reign of Charles II. The warehouses along the quay have now been converted to a variety of antique shops, craft centres, restaurants and tea rooms.
