Truro's railway station is just a few minutes walk from the city centre.

Truro is on the main line between Penzance and London Paddington, with direct connections to Plymouth, Edinburgh and the Midlands. Along this mainline, you can catch one of only two sleeper services in the UK. The Night Riviera Sleeper will take you from Penzance to London Paddington (and in the return direction) six nights a week.

Traveling east from Truro, look out for the magnificent 28 metre (92 ft) high stone viaduct offering expansive views over the city, cathedral, and Truro River in the distance. The structure replaced Isambard Kingdom Brunel's wooden Carvedras Viaduct in 1904.

Connecting to the main line at Truro station is the Maritime Line, a branch line which travels south to Falmouth, with stops at Perranwell, Penryn, Falmouth Town for the National Maritime Museum and Falmouth Docks.
