St James Road,


EX4 6PU.


From the M5: Exit westbound at Junction 29 onto the A3015 (Honiton Road). Follow the road onto the B3183 (Heavitree Road) for two miles, going past Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital. Take the fourth exit at the roundabout into Western Way, and at the next roundabout take the second exit onto Old Tiverton Road. St James Park and Stadium Way are located on the left. 


Please note that owing to very limited parking at St James Park, there is no on-site parking for supporters at St James Park on matchdays. There is also very limited residential parking available locally. 

There are a few car parks near the ground though. There is the King William Street car park (NCP) or the car parks just off Western Way on Parr Street, Belmont, Belgrave Road and Bampfylde Street car park and the Triangle car park (actually accessed from Clifton Road). These are all about five to 10 minutes' walk minutes from the club. 

By Train

The stadium is served by St James Park rail station, a few minutes’ walk from the ground.  The station lies on the Avocet Line (First Great Western trains), which runs from Exeter St David’s to Exmouth, also calling at Exeter Central. 

By Bus

Exeter Bus Station is located around 10 minutes’ walk from St James Park. It is the terminus for many local buses in the Exeter area, as well as serving intercity coach companies including Megabus, National Express, First Bus and Western Greyhound. 


Exeter have a wide range of hot and cold drinks, as well as hot food and confectionary, available for away fans.
