Atlantic Coast Line Rail Ale TrailThe Atlantic Coast Line

Sit back, relax and let the train take you on a scenic tour of real ales along the Atlantic Coast branch line – running from the English Channel at Par on the southern coast of Cornwall to the surfing capital of Newquay, where the Atlantic Coast meets the county on the north coast.

The Rail Ale Trail provides you with the ideal opportunity to experience the beauty of the changing landscapes of Cornwall. It runs through the wild heart of this independent county with tantalising glimpses of its mining and environmental heritage, culminating at the exciting coastline of the north coast, at Newquay, where the adventurous can experience the thrill of surfing world class waves and beginners can learn skills at more sheltered beaches.

Explore a range of distinctive pubs, serving real ales and ideally situated within walking distance of the Atlantic Coast Branch line, by clicking on the pub name in the map below.
