Travel from Totnes
There are a number of travel options for leaving Totnes. We have not included this in the event price because we expect that many people will stay in Totnes for additional activities after the Edge Event and others may travel to locations other than London.
Travel options include:
Totnes is well connected to London (3.5 hours) and many other cities by train services. Tickets are usually cheaper if booked in advance and sometimes it can be cheaper to book a journey in stages even though you don’t have to change trains! Discounts of 33% are available to people who purchase the relevant rail card e.g. Young Person Railcard (for people under 25 years and mature students). In January 2015 the cheapest fare to London Paddington without any discount was around £25.50.
National Rail is a good starting point for travel in the UK. For international train travel always check Seat 61. You can book tickets online (paying with a credit or debit card) and collect them from a station when you arrive in the UK.
The National Express 501 service runs regularly between Totnes and London Victoria and stops at Heathrow Airport. Journey time to Heathrow Airport is around 5.5 hours and to London Victoria 6.5 hours. Both journeys cost from £13.40 (when booked in advance) in January 2015. You can also get the bus to other locations.
This company operates bus and train services between Exeter (approx. 20 miles from Totnes) and London or many other cities and may be cheaper. However, the cost and inconvenience of making the additional journey to Exeter may outweigh any savings. See Megabus.
The nearest airports to Totnes are Exeter and Bristol, but travellers will often find it cheaper to travel from one of the London Airports. To avoid air travel it is possible to travel by train or bus to almost anywhere in Europe. Take a look at Seat 61 (train) or Eurolines (bus) for options.
Travellers from some countries may find it difficult to reserve train or bus tickets in advance. We will try and help where we can but do not have the resources to provide comprehensive support to large numbers of delegates. In the first instance email: email@example.com
