Main Roads into Cornwall:

The primary road into Cornwall from the east is the A30, which connects to the M5 motorway near Exeter. The A38 also provides access from Plymouth and Devon.

Holiday Resorts:

Cornwall is known for its popular holiday resorts, including Newquay, St. Ives, Falmouth, and Padstow, among others. These coastal towns offer a range of accommodations, attractions, and beautiful beaches.


Cornwall has Newquay Cornwall Airport (NQY) as its main airport. This regional airport offers domestic flights to and from various UK destinations.


Traffic conditions in Cornwall can vary, with busy periods during the summer months when tourists flock to the area. Coastal roads can become congested during peak times, so plan your travel accordingly and consider less-traveled routes.

Type of Vehicle:

For general driving in Cornwall, a standard car is suitable. However, if you plan to explore rural or coastal areas with narrow lanes, a smaller vehicle may be more convenient for navigating tight spaces.

Country Lanes:

Cornwall is known for its narrow, winding lanes, especially in rural areas and villages. Some of these roads are single-track with passing places, so be prepared to yield to oncoming traffic.

Scenic Drives:

Cornwall offers several scenic drives, including the North Cornwall Coast Road, which provides breathtaking views of the coastline. The South West Coast Path also offers stunning vistas and hiking opportunities.


When visiting popular tourist destinations, be prepared for limited parking. Many towns and beaches offer pay-and-display parking, so have change on hand.

Driving in Cornwall allows you to discover its stunning landscapes, historic sites, and picturesque villages. While traffic can be heavier during peak tourist seasons, the region's natural beauty makes it a worthwhile destination for road trips and exploration.
