Travel information

Coming to the Met Office

Bristol Airport is the next larger airport to Exeter with several international flight connections. There is an airlink bus called the Falcon which operated between Exeter (Stop is is called “Exeter, Honiton Road P&R”) and Bristol airport, The bus stop is directly outside the Met Office grounds. The journey time is just under 2 hours. Bus tickets can be booked only 4 weeks in advance or directly from the driver  at £9.80 for a one-way trip.

London airports present the major connection to international locations. The best connection represents Heathrow as it provides a convenient train connection to London (Paddington station) and further on to the South West and Exeter. Travel times from Heathrow via London to Exeter by train are ca 3-4 hours. An alternative to the train is a bus connection (National Express) to Exeter, which, depending on the connection can take 3.5 – 5 hours.
