The St Ives Bay Line is notably the most scenic train ride in Britain. It starts at St Erth on the Cornish main line and travels alongside the estuary of the River Hayle before reaching the Atlantic Ocean. Here, this single track line hugs the coastline taking in Lelant Saltings and the stunning beaches of Carbis Bay and Porthminster. There are two train stations in Lelant, one in Carbis Bay and one in St Ives. This train service runs throughout the year and is favoured by many of our guests as one of the best ways to travel in between Carbis Bay and St Ives as the journey takes just 4 minutes.
