Get Directions

The store is located on the pedestrianised section of Courtenay Street in the centre of the town. You'll find us between Cancer Research and Costa Coffee.

By Car:

The two main A-roads past the town are the A38 and the A380. The A38 is linked to the town with the A383 and the A382 and the A380 links to the town via the A381 -  all of which are well signposted.

From each route, follow signs towards the town centre, and the multi-storey car park on Sherborne Road which is only a minutes' walk from the store.

Once parked, exit the car park on the ground level, cross the road and enter Market Square (passing Somerfield on your left). Exit Market Square on the far right corner (between Shoe Zone and Clarkes). Turn right at the end onto Courtenay Street, where Vision Express will be on your left hand-side.

By Train:

Newton Abbot Railway station is a ten minute walk away from the store. On exit of the station, head right along Station Road. Follow this round past St. Joseph’s Church and the Kingdom Hall on your left.

At the end of the road you'll come to Lloyds TSB, where you can turn left onto Courtenay Street. Vision Express will be on your left hand-side.

By Bus:

Most routes into the town depart on Sherborne Street, next to the multi-storey car park. From here, follow the directions above to reach the store.
