Buses replace trains: 4 Jan – 7 Feb 2021
To help provide a more comfortable journey and reliable service, Network Rail is carrying a 5-week-long track renewal project on the St Ives Bay Line (St Erth – St Ives) in early 2021. From Monday 4 January to Sunday 7 February 2021 buses will run every 30 minutes with all services calling at Carbis Bay. Services will also call hourly at Lelant. Replacement buses will depart at different times to normal trains in order to connect with trains at St Erth. Look up times.
The village is about 5 minutes walk away. Leave the station and go straight ahead, up the short, but quite steep hill.
The Badger pub is at the top of this short hill. It is on the St Ives Bay Line Rail Ale Trail.
There is a lovely walk on the South West Coast Path between Lelant and St Ives. As Lelant has an infrequent service, we recommend you take the train from St Ives to Lelant and then walk back.
Now that the Park and Ride has moved to St Erth, Lelant Saltings has a very limited train service. It is just 10 minutes walk from Lelant to Lelant Saltings. Turn left and follow the road.
Visit Lelant by train on the scenic St Ives Bay Line between St Erth and St Ives. Given Lelant’s infrequent train service, be sure to plan your journey in advance.
From Lelant station it is a 5 minute walk to the village.
With its mild climate, beautiful beaches of soft white sand and a famous Mediterranean light that has attracted artists for centuries, St Ives is rightly considered one of Cornwall’s gems.
One of the most beautiful beaches in Cornwall, Carbis Bay has very little parking so the best way to visit is by train. Get off at Carbis Bay station, just before St Ives.
St Erth is the Park & Ride station to visit St Ives by train. It’s conveniently located on the A30 (TR27 6JW) and has more than 500 spaces spread across its two car parks.
