I live in Torpoint so the ferry is a must for going to Plymouth and further afield. Ferries usually leave every quarter an hour on the hour. In the summer can have queues and at peak time. Toilet on board and refreshment machine. Crossing takes 10 to 15 min. Most of the employees are friendly but a few come across... More

You love it when you are first off, hate it when you are in the first lane of queuing traffic and are last off. You love it when you think you are going to miss the ferry but you make it and they close the gates behind you, hate it when it leaves early (according to your watch) and you... More

Attended HMS Raleigh recently for a passing out parade, and travelled down from Cardiff. The ferry was so easy to access and very professionally run. Excellent!!

It's just a ferry, but super efficient. You pay one way (heading out of Cornwall) and it's only £1.50, so the same price as the bridge. As a driver you get a chance to look up and down the estuary, which you don't when driving over the bridge (and obviously you can see the bridge, which you can't do when... More

The Torpoint Ferry is always an interesting trip. We have crossed by car and (best of all!) on the top of a double decker bus. Strongly recommended. Always interesting to see how the crew load and unload so rapidly and efficiently. You only pay going from Torpoint to Plymouth.

No problems using the ferry, the staff were very helpful in making sure you knew where to park and when to move off on arrival on the opposite shore. No waiting and unless you were watching, don't realise the ferry has moved.

For pedestrians, much the best way to cross the Tamar between Torpoint and Devonport. Includes ramps for embarking and disembarking. passenger bridge for viewing the river & warships, snack machines and at slack times, maybe cabaret by the ferry staff. Maybe not.

A chain or cable ferry, At only £1.50 for a car, free for foot passengers,Tolls are payable in the Torpoint to Devonport (eastbound) direction only. it's great, it takes you from A to B in a few minutes. Do it, just to say you've done a chain ferry #bucketlist lol
