The Maritime Line

The Maritime Line links the bustling Cathedral city of Truro with the harbour port of Falmouth.

This busy line is great for going shopping in Truro, exploring Falmouth and its maritime history or for exploring the area on foot with the many footpaths and trails that exist.

Visit mainland Britain’s most southerly city, Truro, with its impressive gothic cathedral and back streets full of independent shops to explore – all less than 15 minutes’ walk from the station. Truro is on the mainline linking Cornwall with the rest of the country. It is also the starting point for the branch line to Falmouth, with an Off-Peak Day Return costing just £4.70.

Visit Falmouth and explore its glorious harbour, beaches, art galleries, maritime heritage and more. Enjoy a boat trip on the Fal River, or try your hand at kayaking, windsurfing or snorkelling. Take a walk along the seafront or explore Pendennis Castle. Falmouth has three stations, the main one is Town, but there's also Dock at the end of the line and Penmere on the way into the town.

Along the line you can stop off at the historic town of Penryn, founded in 1216 with many fine granite buildings, mostly 17th century with Georgian fronts. Take a stroll and discover Penryn’s special character, including its waterfront.

There is also a station at Perranwell, a pretty village south on Truro..

Dogs are welcome on the train.
