Located on the eastern edge of the Rame Peninsula, opposite Devonport, lies Torpoint. Things to do in this area include Antony House, Trematon Castle and Mount Edgcumbe House & Country Park.


Ferries run all year across the Tamar into Devon if you wish to 'run the gauntlet' and cross the border!


There is also a fantastic beach at Whitsand Bay.


In 1796 Torpoint was the setting for a shooting battle between the crew of a government vessel, the Viper, and a large party of armed liquor smugglers!
