We are on the Topsham road about 5 or 10 minutes walk from the city centre. If you are on foot then its an easy drop down to the river and from there a its very short stroll up to the Quay.

By bus

Several buses pass the church including K (Pinhoe - City Centre - Countess Wear), T (as K but extended from Countess Wear to Topsham), R (City Centre, Heavitree,  Burnthouse Lane,  Topsham Road clockwise circle) and S (City Centre, Topsham Road, Burnthouse Lane, Heavitree anti-clockwise circle).

Buses from further afield  (e.g. 2, 39, 57,  X38 and X46) turn off the Topsham Road into Barrack Road.  So get off at the first stop after the turning, walk back to Topsham Road, turn right and walk for 5-8 mins to the church which is on your Left.

By train


Exeter Central is the nearest station.  Come out of the station by the station buildings, turn left then after 200m turn right into the High Street, then after another 200m turn left at the crossroads into South Street. At this point you can catch a K, S or T bus to St Leonard's or just continue walking for another 7 - 10 minutes down South Street straight over the Junction, down Holloway Street then up the hill and St Leonard's is on your right.

Exeter St. David's - catch bus H to the City Centre (beware that buses in both directions use the same stop - you want one that is NOT going to Cowley Bridge).  Get off just after Exeter Central Station and follow the directions above.

By car

from Exe Bridges:

Take the Western way exit off Exe Bridges roundabout, heading up the hill (signposted towards the Cathedral and Quay car parks). At the top of the hill get into the right hand lane. Follow the road round to the right and head down towards Holloway Street (signposted Topsham). Follow this road down the hill, where becomes Topsham Road. St Leonard's church is just up the other side of the dip on the right hand side.

Follow Western Way in the direction signposted Marsh Barton and Plymouth. Follow this round past the Magdalen Chapter hotel. Then take the first left onto Holloway Street, signposted to Topsham. Follow this road down the hill, where it becomes Topsham Road. St Leonard's church is just up the other side of the dip on the right hand side.

from the M5:

Exit at junction 30 signposted Exeter city centre (not the junction signposted to Exeter airport). Take the 3rd roundabout exit onto the A379 signposted Exeter city centre. Take the 2nd exit off the A379 signposted Marsh Barton and Exeter City Centre. Follow this road for 400m to a roundabout (with a Shell petrol station). Take the third exit onto Topsham Road, signposted to Exeter city centre. Drive for nearly 2 miles.
