YOUR GUIDE TO TAKING THE TRAIN FROM FALMOUTH AND PENRYN
With trains seven days a week to Truro where you can change on to the main line, Falmouth and Penryn are well-placed for great day trips by train.
Trains depart every half an hour through most of the day (Mon-Sat, hourly on Sundays). Trains are half-hourly on the main line too.
Explore the historic Hoe (pictured), wander the harbour, enjoy some great local seafood or visit the city's new state of the art IMAX cinema.
Enjoy one of Britain’s most scenic train journeys, then explore St Ives' beaches, galleries and picturesque narrow streets.
Cornwall’s capital is a city for all seasons with its picturesque Georgian streets, excellent shopping and majestic Anglican Cathedral.
Up to two dogs are allowed on the train per person, free of charge. Just bring a lead.
BRING YOUR BUGGY
You can bring your pram or buggy. If possible please fold it down once on the train. Under 5s travel free.
On trains between Falmouth and Truro, two bikes are allowed on a first come, first served basis. More may be permitted if the train is quiet. On high speed services on the main line, reservation is mandatory.
Why not try commuting by train? Regular passengers can make substantial savings by taking advantage of season tickets.
Season tickets are available for one week, one month or any period up to a year. Buy your season ticket at a staffed station such as Truro. Take along a recent passport-sized photo. Once you have a photocard, weekly tickets can then be bought on the train.
