Saltash railway station is in the tiny Cornish town of Saltash just across the River Tamar from Plymouth. It was opened in the mid-19th century and there is a plaque at the station commemorating the 125th anniversary of the Royal Albert Bridge next to the station.  The station buildings still exist next to one of the platforms, though they were sold off to private investors in the ‘90s. The two platforms sit alongside the Cornish Main Line on the route between Plymouth and Penzance. It’s an unstaffed station with no facilities for purchasing tickets, so they need to be bought online in advance or on board the train with the guard. Facilities at the station including waiting shelters on both platforms, bench seating, help points and racks for locking up bicycles. There is an hourly direct departure to Plymouth in 10 minutes and an irregular hourly direct departure westbound to Penzance in 1 hour 47 minutes.

There’s lots to do near Saltash railway station. You could hoist the mainsails and cruise along the Cornish coastline at the Saltash Sailing Club or amble around the Saltash Heritage Museum to learn about the region’s history.
