Travelling to Padstow from London

I am wanting to travel to Padstow from London, and have found a train that will take me to Newquay. Is this my best option for the train? And once i get to Newquay, what is the easiest way to get to Padstow?

Hi craft1

Western Greyhound's service number 556 departs from outside Newquay's Great Western Hotel by the station Mon -Sat at 09.08, 11.08, 13.08, 15.08, 17.08 and 19.08. This will drop you in Padstow by the old station in the town. Newquay station is the nearest you'll get to Padstow I'm afraid.

Another option might be to get same bus on its Bodmin - Padstow leg?


Goes from Bodmin Parkway which is a stopping station for London trains.

According to the timetable takes about an hour. Not sure how the connections at Par to Newquay then Newquay to Padstow work out but certainly an alternative.

Bodmin Road has a far more frequent train service than Newquay so is probably the better alternative.

We are thinking of train from London to somewhere convenient in the Cornwall area (?) to pick up a car to get to Padstow and other places Mousehole (?) St Ives etc. We would have liked to go to Gittisham on the way but don't know if that fits in...ie is there somewhere near Gittisham to pick up a car and then on to Padstow or is that not feasible? Thanks for any help....

If Gittisham is a must do then I would get the train to Exeter ot Taunton and then hire a car.
