Cornwall Mini Guide

Driving from London to Cornwall takes rather a long time and you would do well to plan your journey for a time when the roads are not jammed. If you were to drive down the M5 on a bank holiday Friday, for example, you will find that the A30 and A38 roads become very congested the closer you get to Cornwall. Allow six hours driving time but expect to see some wonderful scenery as you reach your destination.  Find more info on driving and hiring a car in the UK here.

You will need to book your Cornwall hire car in advance as the demand in the summer months is high. If you plan to fly, head for Newquay Airport on a domestic flight from English airports including Manchester, Bristol, Gatwick and Stansted. Ryanair, British Airways and Flybe are some of the companies which land planes at Newquay and from there you can rent a Rhino hire car to complete the rest of your journey.

Having a car is the only way to get out and see the unmissable sights of Cornwall.
