Our daughter now believes that the chains are pulled by rabbits in the towers 😂😂there’s not a lot to say other than the staff were friendly and it’s always nice to use the ferry rather than the bridge.

As a visitor to the area I can never get fed up of going on the Torpoint Ferry. You only pay the £1.50 cost going into Plymouth. Very efficient loading and unloading. 8 mins later you arrive at your destination. Saves lots of time.

Still a great way to enter Fowey seeing all the boats and sea front houses - but so expensive £5 per car.

Very quick and efficient. 15 mins crossing time if you time it right. Several vessels running at a time so wait for one to come in is not that long. Free to come into Cornwall- £1-50 a car to leave.

This crossing is very easy, there are a couple of ferries going back and forth here, and you don't usually have long to wait unless it's peak times. People use this for a work commute so avoid the usual rush hour times. It's easy to...More
