Trains to St Austell

Sitting on a hillside just above the picturesque town that it serves, St. Austell station is home to both local and long distance trains, as well as the Night Riviera sleeper service. Dating back to May 1859, the station has seen many renovations over the years, most recently in 2000, when the main buildings were rebuilt to face the town’s bus station. From there buses travel further into town and out to the countryside – there’s also a shuttle service to world-famous garden attraction The Eden Project. The St Austell stretch of the Cornish Main Line boasts two spectacular viaducts: the 115-foot high St Austell Viaduct (crossing Trenance Valley) and the slightly smaller Gover Viaduct (crossing Gover Valley) – both were originally timber, but rebuilt in stone in the 1890s. The town is famous for its St Austell Brewery, whose beers are enjoyed across the country, and for the beautiful St. Austell Bay, about two miles southeast of the station.

Passengers travelling east to west can access platform 1 via the main doors in the station building. From here, a footbridge leads to platform 2, for services to the east of the country.
