Lelant station is in a picturesque waterside setting.

How to visit by train

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.

Coming by train

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.
