If you are in London, take the Paddington to Penzance train. All the trains going to Cornwall are marked to Penzance because it is the last stop, but you will alight at Truro.
If you are arriving by air at Gatwick you should take a bus from Gatwick to Reading Station. If you are arriving by air at Heathrow, you should take the Heathrow Express train to Paddington which takes only 15 minutes.
The train journey to Cornwall takes around five hours from Paddington. The trip through Devon is very scenic, and, as you enter Cornwall, you will cross the famous Brunel railway bridge over the Tamar River. The train then stops frequently before arriving in Truro. If you let us know the time of your arrival, we will arrange for someone to meet you at Truro railway station, or taxis are available from outside the station. Truro is approximately 20 minutes drive from Falmouth.
