Easiest, quickest, cheapest way to cross from Plymouth to Torpoint. Driving around is picturesque but the ferry is so much more convenient.

Far better way to cross the River than driving over a bridge for certain. The views of the dockyard are fantastic to, and you only pay to come back from Cornwall, winner. Drove straight on when we pulled up and got to get off first to!!

Painless ferry trip. Very smooth. As far as I can make out you only pay going one way from Torpoint to Plymouth.

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.
