There is a high demand for car parking spaces at our hospital sites so we recommend, where practical and possible, that our patients and visitors use the dedicated hospital park and ride bus service or local public transport.


This section also includes maps on where our sites lie in Exeter and maps of the Wonford site.

Heavitree Hospital

Please note Waitrose now own a significant part of the Heavitree hospital site. Access to the main Heavitree hospital building is now via Polsloe Road and Gladstone Road only.





Our carparks are very busy and parking is limited, so we encourage you to use one of our two dedicated Park & Ride bus services, which are located at Sowton and Digby and both go directly to the RD&E Wonford site. Both services are run in partnership with Dartline Coaches.

The Sowton Park & Ride service (SPR3) runs every 30 minutes, Monday to Friday. This service is for patients and visitors.
