Getting to


Cornwall has never been more accessible by plane, train or automobile. We have three airports in the South West, Bristol, Exeter and Cornwall Airport Newquay, as well as a direct rail service from London Paddington with Great Western Railway.



There are three airports within easy reach of Cornwall. Whilst Cornwall Airport Newquay offers flights across the UK to the heart of the peninsula, both Exeter and Bristol offer a range of domestic and international flights so wherever you’re travelling in from, it’s never been easy to get to this beautiful corner of the UK. 

Various Airport options



Rail is one of the most beautiful ways to travel into Cornwall.  With a direct service to and from London Paddington and some  stunning local coastal and countryside services operating across the county, you can get here with ease and be wowed by spectacular views for your ongoing journey. 

River Lynher - Cornwall



Where the M5 motorway finishes, the A30 trunk road picks up.  Running the length of the county, travel by road to any part of Cornwall is not only easy, it’s incredibly beautiful as you wind your way across the rolling countryside to your destination.  The A39 links up the Northern most section of Cornwall too for ease. 

Strong Road Connections



The international ferry port at Plymouth is right on Cornwall’s doorstep and opens up travel by sea from Europe.  There are several services available from mainland France and Spain and reports of a direct route from Portugal imminent.  Within Cornwall, numerous passenger ferries link up parts of the county and make for an enjoyable way of travelling around.
