Calstock, Cornwall - the town and the viaduct from the river

Calstock is an historic town on the River Tamar. It’s steep narrow streets and riverside setting make it an attractive place for tourists. The majestic railway viaduct dominates the riverside scene.

Nearby Gunnislake is worth a trip too, as is Morwellham Quay up the river.

Getting to Calstock by Train

Unlike many towns in Cornwall, Calstock has managed to retain its railway station and there is a regular (although not frequent) First Great Western train service to and from Plymouth. The trains usually go further north up to Gunnislake.
