Newquay is a great place to visit by train with good rail links to the rest of the country.
Through trains run to Par, junction for the Newquay line, from London, Bristol, Birmingham and many other towns and cities seven days a week, all year round. From there, it is an easy trip on the local line to Newquay where the railway station is located in the heart of the town.
Every summer from the end of May to the end of September, Newquay has direct trains from London, Bristol, Birmingham, Yorkshire, the North East and Scotland. There is a daily London service during July and August.
Once in Newquay the train is a great way to explore the area and avoid the traffic jams. Visit St Ives with its quaint narrow streets and art galleries, or take the train to Plymouth for its excellent shopping and historic Elizabethan Barbican.
Great value fares can be found if you book in advance, the earlier you book, the more you can save!
