Services between St Erth - St Ives and the closure of Falmouth Town station
This year, the 47th G7 Leaders’ Summit will be held in Carbis Bay, Cornwall. GWR is making changes to support the organisation of the event, including the security of access.
Line between St Erth and St Ives
From 00:01 Monday 7 June – 12:00 on Monday 14 June no trains will run between St Erth and St Ives.
replacement buses will run between St Erth and St Ives during this time, but from Trenwith car park in St Ives instead of the station.
The car park is ½ mile from the station via a hill and some steps.
replacement buses between St Erth – Lelant Saltings – Lelant – Carbis Bay will run on 7, 8, 9, and 14 June (until 12:00 when train services start again)
However, due to the A3074 being closed for the G7 summit, it won't be possible to run a St Erth – Lelant Saltings – Lelant – Carbis Bay service between 10 - 13 June.
replacement buses will depart at different times to the normal trains, so that they can connect to/from trains at St Erth

Falmouth Town station
Falmouth Town will be closed 10 – 14 June. If you are travelling to/from Falmouth on these dates, please use Falmouth Docks. Please note, though, that there will be no parking available. Although the summit is being held at Carbis Bay, the media centre will be in Falmouth. To safely manage the large number of people leaving, we will use Falmouth Docks – which is a larger station.
