We have a great number of customers asking us the quickest route from Central London to North Devon? Some think that travelling from Paddington to Exeter and then a taxi ride to North Devon is the fastest but it's much quicker if you depart at Tiverton Parkway. Mainly due to the 2 hour train from London Paddington to Tiverton Parkway and you save the time it would take to travel from Tiverton to Exeter. This coupled with the journey time in the taxi means you can make it from London to Ilfracombe, Woolacombe or Croyde in under 3.5 hours.
