The new Avocet Line Foodie Guide was recently launched in Exmouth to highlight local restaurants, cafes, food businesses, markets and events which can all be reached by train on the Exeter to Exmouth Avocet Line.

Some 15,000 of the free guides have been distributed by Great Western Railway (GWR) through stations across its network, including London Paddington, Bristol Temple Meads, Exeter St David’s and Plymouth.

Lisa Bowman, Exmouth town council clerk, said “It is great to see the Devon and Cornwall Rail Partnership and GWR working together on this initiative which will encourage visitors and locals alike to visit the area.

“We have some fantastic food businesses in Exmouth showcasing some of the best produce in the county.”

The guide can be found at Tourist Information Centres, staffed GWR stations or downloaded at www.greatscenicrailways.com/food .
