We’re easy to find

Topsham is easy to reach by road and public transport, and also makes an excellent gateway to exploring other areas of Devon, as well as the Jurassic Coast, World Heritage site. To plan your journey, you can visit traveline.info for lots of options.

By Car

There are several car parks in Topsham but as with many small Devon towns, parking overall is limited and many people prefer the excellent public transport. Topsham does have a hire by the hour or day car club service too,  with a parking space in Tappers Close. This is part of a wider network of cars across Exeter.

There is also the local taxi company, Sowton and Topsham Cars on 01392 879090

By  Bike

Topsham is located on the Exe Estuary Trail section of National Cycle Network (NCN) Route 2, with convenient access to routes on both sides of the Exe. There are several bike rental companies in Exeter and Exmouth. The not-for-profit social enterprise CoBikes, an on-demand electric bike scheme, allows you to pick up a bike in Exeter and leave it at the CoBikes docking area in Topsham and vice versa.

By Bus

Topsham is well-served by bus with the frequent 57 service running from Exeter city centre (Sidwell Street) to Exmouth via Topsham where it stops at the Lord Nelson pub and the railway station. The less frequent T bus runs from stop 2 on Exeter High Street to Topsham terminating at the Quay. For timetables see the Stagecoach website.

By Water

If you are experienced on the water, why not kayak from Exeter quay? For a very useful guide to the local waters, see Exmouth and River Exe (including Topsham) at visitmyharbour.com. Entrance to the Exe Estuary is quite tricky and tide-critical.

By Train

Trains between Exeter and Exmouth run half-hourly, and all stop at Topsham. Trains towards Exeter alternately go on to Paignton and Barnstaple. For times and tickets check The Trainline


By Air

Topsham is just 4 miles from Exeter International Airport
