You are able to walk to most places but if you’re travelling a bit further afield there are also a number of bus and coach services, with perhaps the most important being, the D bus runs between the Streatham Campus, the city centre, on to St Luke’s Campus, a Tesco superstore, and then comes right back. Exeter also has its own international airport, which provides a number of great transport links across the UK. Other excellent transport services include the two main train stations in Exeter, which are Exeter St Davids and Exeter Central.
