St Germans railway station is used by the little community of St Germans and the surrounding Cornish villages. It was opened in the mid-19th century by the then Cornwall Railway and the pretty old station buildings on both platforms still exist today. Between the late ‘40s and ‘90s, it was nationalised, though it was returned to Great Western Railway who still run it, along with the trains that pass through on the Cornish Main Line, today. There are basic facilities here including waiting shelters, timetable posters and help points, though tickets must be bought before arrival or on board the train with the conductor. There is an irregular hourly direct service to Penzance in 1 hour 40 minutes and Plymouth in 16 minutes.

When you step off at St Germans, you’ll be just moments away from the River Tiddy. Here, you can join the Quay Sailing Club to learn how to sail or skipper a yacht for the day.
