Travel by Train to Carbis Bay

Don't fancy driving to Cornwall? Take the train instead.

Train travel in Cornwall is a great way to discover the region, offering scenic views of rolling green hills, woodland, and the stunning coastline.

Good public transportation links to St Ives and the surrounding areas make the Gannet an ideal location for a holiday to St Ives.

During your stay with us, catch the train into St Ives and enjoy one of the most scenic train journeys in Britain. Enjoy the spectacular views from the train window as the line sweeps along the coast past the golden sands of Carbis Bay before arriving in St Ives. Then head for the beach, explore the harbour or wander the shops and art galleries.

There is also an open-top bus (the Land's End Coaster) that gives you the opportunity to witness rugged coastlines, mining heritage sites, harbour towns, and the actual Land's End.
