Visiting Cornwall September 2016

Jump to last reply

I will be visiting Cornwall at the end of September 2016 for one week. I will be traveling with my sister. Plenty of time to plan!

I figure I will have additional questions from time to time, and will try to keep them all on this same post.

My question for now is whether to drive from London or take the train. I have not yet looked at differences in cost. However, although I first assumed we would travel by train, I started thinking perhaps we should drive.

If we take the train we will need to get to the train station from Haddenham (should not be too difficult), and then get a car rental when we arrive in Truro, and of course do the reverse when returning although likely then leaving the train station to Heathrow at that time.

If we drive, we would have the car already and can go straight to our destination. We still would have to figure out logistics of picking up the car and returning it. Possibly just picking up and returning it at Heathrow.

I should mention that we will already be in England prior to going down to Cornwall, so this is not leaving directly from the airport upon arrival. Both of us are from the US and both of us are experienced driving on the left side of the road.

So, I though I would get input/ideas from some experts here. What are your thoughts?
