Trains to Plymouth

Traveling by train is a great way to reach Plymouth, one of southwest England's most attractive destinations. Plymouth has excellent rail connections to London, Bristol, Exeter, and other major regional cities. And thanks to links to London Heathrow and Gatwick airports, it's also possible to transfer by train from flights across the Atlantic.

Which is the main train station in Plymouth?

All train services to Plymouth will arrive at the same point: Plymouth Station. The station occupies a handy location for those headed to central Plymouth. By walking south for a few hundred yards, visitors can easily reach the city center. The University is also a short walk away, and buses run to Plymouth Hoe, around one and a half miles to the south.

Which train companies offer trains to Plymouth?

Not many companies offer train services to Plymouth, so there's no need to choose between competing fares. Most trains are provided by Great Western Railways (GWR), which runs trains from London to the east and Penzance to the west. Expect a journey time of around three hours from London.

Why travel by train to Plymouth?

Catching the train to Plymouth will be a convenient and enjoyable way to reach this historic southwestern port city. Trains run from London Paddington multiple times every day, allowing those who land at London Heathrow to easily transfer from Heathrow Express trains. With a journey time of around three hours 20 minutes in most cases, it won't take long to reach Plymouth. Moreover, sections of the route in Devon feature some of the most beautiful scenery to be found on any British railway journeys. It definitely beats cramming into short-haul flights to Newquay or coach services.

Before you travel to Plymouth by train - good to know!

When getting around Plymouth, travelers may well find that buses are a handy option. In that case, day tickets for groups or individuals make a lot of sense. With these tickets, visitors can easily reach Plymouth Hoe or Devonport, putting all of the city's maritime attractions within reach. There's a lot to see. The Hoe is famous for its association with Sir Francis Drake, while the Mayflower Museum tells the story of how the Pilgrim Fathers set out for America. Smeaton's Tower offers amazing views of the port, while nearby beaches like Wembury are some of the most picturesque in England.
