Travelling from Devon to Cornwall can be achieved in many ways. Across the moors, across the Tamr bridge and via the Torpoint ferry. The ferry has eve in operation in many guises over the centuries but today offers a credible alternative to the Tamar bridge especially if you are travelling to the south Cornish coast, like Whitsand Bay.

I would not call a ferry an attraction but if you need to get from point A to point B and there is water in the way, then a ferry is a very good bet! This one takes little time to load, little time to cross and surprisingly little time to unload as well. Especially surprising because of how many... More

The whole thing from driving onto the ferry, waiting for it to fill, reaching the other side and exiting was over quite quickly and the workers on board steady the flow of traffic on and off so you don't feel rushed or pressured at any point. And for only £1.50 to pay in the return trip only it's a bargain... More

Fast and only £1.50. Unsure of the operating hours but it's clean and fun if you have company that's never been on a small ferry.

Traveling to Plymouth via the ferry was so easy. Follow the traffic lights to waiting area (only a couple of minutes) and very well organised. Short smooth crossing and all for £1.50 BARGAIN ! So quick we even saw Emergency Ambulance with blue lights on using the ferry !!!

Travelling over to trooping from devonport and discovered this which saved us a massive round trip as needed to get over to caws and. Brilliant service, no long waits and frequent crossings. Will use again for sure now.
