Travel Information

By Road

It takes less than five hours to get from London to Falmouth by either train or car. Drive along the M4 Motorway from London, or M6 from Manchester, and then the M5 to Exeter and finally either the A30, that is mostly dual carriageway, or the A38 through Plymouth and Saltash into South East Cornwall. Due to the high volume of traffic on Cornwall’s roads during the peak summer months the main A30 route can become congested, especially at weekends. Travelling overnight or outside peak rush hours is recommended to avoid long delays.

To plan your journey use Google Maps, RAC Route Finder or the AA Route Planner for a more detailed travel plan with timings and mileage.
