- Welcome to Launceston Steam Railway -

We're open Sunday - Wednesday (inclusive) throughout July.  For more details, please see the opening times page.

We anticipate to hold our 2023 fares until our current coal stocks deplete to a level where we need to purchase more. We will provide updates should this change. Please see our "Timetable and Fares" page for details.

Our enchanting 2½ mile narrow gauge railway offers train rides through the unspoilt countryside of the Kensey Valley in Cornwall.  All trains are hauled by lovingly restored Victorian Steam Locomotives.

You can spend the whole day at Launceston and the Steam Railway – At Launceston Station, you can enjoy a tasty lunch or a luxury cream tea in our Café, browse the fascinating exhibits in our Museum, take home a souvenir of your visit from our well-stocked Gift & Book Shop, and explore the historic Cornish town of Launceston with its famous castle.

From Launceston Station, you can use the train to travel to Newmills Station where you can go for a walk along our riverside track, take a walk in the countryside or head towards the village of Tregadillett.

PLEASE NOTE - The park at Newmills Station is not affiliated with us; the land is privately owned with no public access.
