Unfortunately, the Padstow Railway is long gone but frequent trains into Bodmin Parkway allow access to an hourly bus timetable leaving the station approximately every 10 past the hour.

Bodmin Parkway

Various busses around the county visit Padstow but if you head for Bodmin, Wadebridge or Newquay, they will offer the most frequent services into Padstow.

Go Cornwall Bus

In our personal opinion, the Camel Trail is one of the most beautiful and scenic cycle trails, delivering you straight into Padstow. Bring your own bike or hire a bike from a variety of cycle hirers.

The Southwest Coast Path and the Saints Way both offer memorable walks into Padstow. The SW Coast Path does exactly what it says on the tin and follows the breathtakingly dramatic path along the estuary into the town. The Saints Way is the probable route of early Christian pilgrims from Fowey to Padstow, offering more of a sheltered yet strikingly impressive option. Both are deserved of a rewarding fine Cornish delight.
