Trains to Bodmin Parkway

Bodmin is one of Cornwall's oldest towns, and by the 19th century it was a major settlement. So it's perhaps surprising that its first station was a temporary wooden shed some four miles away, erected while the Cornwall Railway negotiated with local landowners. That early station became Bodmin Parkway, and today it is connected to the town centre by Bodmin and Wenford Railway, a heritage steam line - making it a rare interchange between main line and heritage services. The station's main line connections are good, with the Cornish Main Line taking passengers west to Penzance and east to Plymouth, and providing occasional through trains to London Paddington. There are also some long-distance services to Manchester and Glasgow. While most visitors will want to continue to the pretty Bodmin town centre, a brisk walk from Bodmin Parkway will bring you to Lanhydrock, a spectacular Victorian mansion managed by the National Trust. It's about a mile and a half to the west.
