Gone are the days of hours sitting in overheating vehicles with little ones asking 'Are we there yet?' – Cornwall now has excellent road, rail and air links from all around the country. London–Falmouth is about 450km or 5hrs by road, or about 5hrs 30mins by train, usually with one change, at Truro. If you’re coming from northern England or Scotland, you might want to check out flights to Newquay Airport.
