We are pleased to present a relaxing long weekend break to Cornwall the land of myths and legends on board “The Statesman” land cruise train. With its rugged coastlines, quaint fishing villages, sparkling blue sea and sandy beaches you will savour some of the most unspoilt countryside in Britain basking in milder temperatures warmed by the Gulf Stream and offering an unforgettable three-day break.  

Our train travels through beautiful Somerset before passing historic Exeter with spectacular views across the River Exe as we follow the coastline and dash through cuttings of red rock and around the sea wall at Dawlish prior to climbing the Devon banks with views of Dartmoor, then into Cornwall over Brunel’s famous Royal Albert Bridge. You may choose to alight at the county town of Truro for the regular rail service to  Falmouth offering a wide choice of top quality hotels just a stones throw from the station, alternatively continue to St Erth and board the local train for the short journey through Carbis Bay to St Ives the dazzling Jewel in Cornwall’s crown and voted Britain’s best holiday destination.  Our final destination is the historic seafaring town of Penzance, with numerous hotels and guest houses, including a brand-new Premier Inn directly opposite the station where we are due to arrive around 18.00. 

The day is yours at leisure to relax and enjoy your chosen resort, or perhaps venture further afield with a days sail from Penzance on ‘Scillonian III’ to the beautiful and unspoilt Isles of Scilly, or visit the quaint fishing villages of Newlyn and Mousehole, or take a walk along the cliff top paths offering stunning views across unspoilt beaches and coves – Whatever you choose don’t forget to include a sumptuous cream tea by the harbour or freshly made Cornish Pasty.

Departing from Penzance late morning we call at St Erth and Truro, and our return journey retraces the outward route through Cornwall, passing maritime Plymouth and around the beautiful Devon Riviera Coast.
