THE TAMAR VALLEY LINE - YOUR GUIDE TO TAKING THE TRAIN
With trains seven days a week to Plymouth where you can change on to the main line, the Tamar Valley Line is great for day trips...
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.
Head to Exeter for some great shopping including John Lewis and Princesshay shopping centre, or visit the historic quayside.
Cornwall’s capital is a city for all seasons with its picturesque Georgian streets, excellent shopping and majestic Anglican Cathedral.
