Hayle train station has been serving the Cornish town of Hayle since it first opened in 1852 and is a valued transport link for the small town and its surrounding areas.

Sitting on the line spanning between Plymouth and Penzance, Hayle offers direct access to key regional towns and cities. The station first opened as a part of the West Cornwall Railway in 1852, replacing the former Hayle Railway station. During this period, Hayle was a busy junction with passenger and freight services operating around the local area. However, this hustle and bustle began to wane along with the decline of shipping in the Hayle estuary, which unfortunately meant that the town was no longer part of a key transit area.

Despite the decline of freight and goods services, passenger trains to and from Hayle train station are still popular. With Hayle proving to be a popular tourist destination, especially during the peak summer season, you can even stay in a camping coach at Hayle train station, which has been turned into a unique accommodation choice for families, couples, and groups of friends.

You can reach Hayle from across Cornwall and the rest of the UK, with trains operated by Great Western Railway and CrossCountry. Popular routes on CrossCountry trains include Penzance to Hayle, Plymouth to Hayle, Bristol to Hayle, York to Hayle, and Edinburgh to Hayle.

Facilities at Hayle train station include free public Wi-Fi, bicycle parking, CCTV of the bike storage area, a car park which is open 24 hours a day, and lost property.
