Visitor information for Saltash in Cornwall

Situated on the west bank of the river Tamar, just over the border into Cornwall, the town of Saltash has a history dating back to the 12th century, when it was founded as a market town. The Royal Albert Rail Bridge, which spans the Tamar alongside the Tamar road bridge, was designed and engineered by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Opened in 1859, just prior to Brunel’s death, its unique and attractive design can be best seen from the pedestrian walkway on the road bridge.

The town centre is home to a number of independent retailers selling a range of gifts, souvenirs and everyday essentials that meet the needs of both local residents and tourists.

In and around the town there are several signposted walks of varying lengths, the ideal way of enjoying the scenery of this lush valley location. Leaflets showing the routes can be downloaded from the Saltash Town Council website at
