- Airports. The region has a number of airports that has International and UK routes including Exeter Airport, Newquay Airport and Bodmin Airport.
- Trains. The UK rail network runs regular trains between London and Cornwall with a journey to Falmouth taking approximately 5 hours.
- Cars. Cornwall is very accessible by car with the motorway and dual carriageway network covering much of the journey. However it is worth noting that as you travel through Devon and Cornwall you will be travelling on smaller, slower roads and this will increase your journey time.
