Getting around Newquay
There are a number of different ways that you can get from Cornwall Airport Newquay to the town centre. Of course, if you’re looking for convenience, then a taxi to the front door is tough to beat. Coastline Travel Cornwall is the airport’s only official taxi provider. You can find their desk in the arrivals hall – even better, you’ll receive a discount if you pre-book your taxi by giving them a call.
If you’d prefer to catch the bus, the First Kernow service between Newquay and Padstow stops between the terminal and the west car park. Another option, which is a bit of a curveball, is the service provided by Go ByCycle – they’ll deliver your hired bikes to the airport, and can provide luggage transfers to your accommodation if you don’t fancy juggling it while you’re pedalling.
Newquay Train Station
Depending on where you’re going, especially in the town centre, it can be difficult finding convenient places to park. It’s a good job that there are plenty of local taxi services, as well as Uber that’ll help you get wherever you need to go. Ask at our hotel receptions if you would like any help booking a taxi.
You can also find Newquay Bus Station on Manor Road, with local services running to the majority of towns in the surrounding 20 miles or so. National Express also operates Megabus services between Newquay bus station and destinations all across the UK.
You’ll find Newquay Train Station on the seafront, just off the Great Western Beach. It only has one platform, acting as the final stop of the Par to Newquay Atlantic Coast Line. On weekends in the summer months, Great Western Railway operates a direct service between London Paddington and Newquay, and CrossCountry has direct services from northern locations, including Birmingham, Yorkshire and the northeast.
The train station has transformed over the years. It started in the 1840s as a horse-worked line from the harbour to Hendra Crazey. In its heyday, there were three platforms to cater for the influx of people coming to visit Newquay during the summer holiday months.
