Tamar Valley Line
Leaving the city of Plymouth behind you, immerse yourself in the views of the Tamar Valley. Take a window seat and enjoy the rolling countryside, sleepy villages and tranquil river crossings. The highlight of the journey is when the train slowly creeps down over the Calstock viaduct and you are 120 feet high looking down on the river below. Look closely out of the window and see the National Trust house Cotehele nestled in the woods. Once across the viaduct, explore the village of Calstock, with its great pubs, arty shops and popular ice cream parlour.
The train carries on to Gunnislake, once the centre of the valleys industrial past. A short walk from the station is the Tamar Valley Centre, a gateway for visitors to the Tamar Valley National Landscape and a resource for the community. It stocks books and souvenirs (card payment only please) and is able to offer you information about local places to visit. Please check the website beforehand for opening hours.
