Visit Launceston

Commonly referred to as 'the Gateway', signifying the border between Devon and Cornwall, the skyline of the picturesque village of Launceston is dominated by the magnificent ruins of an 11th century Norman castle. Its cobbled streets are adorned with charming shops and cafes, and the Launceston Steam Railway provides a delightful day out for families and couples alike. It’s a great destination for a Cornish holiday.

A Cornish Gateway

Perfectly positioned for just about everything in the South West, Launceston is just inside the Cornish border, so you can easily hop across to Devon if you fancy it during your stay.

Sandwiched between Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor National Park, you’ll never be short of options when it comes to rural strolling, and with fantastic beaches on both the north and south coast of Cornwall, you’ll have your pick of the pack if it’s a lazy day on the sand you’re after!

Launceston’s 11th century castle ruins offer a wonderful glimpse into the history of the town, and dominate the pretty skyline of the area. Meanwhile, if you’d rather stay more grounded, the Launceston Steam Railway will leave you chuffed after a day spent on the tracks.
