In the third of four episodes of Coastal Railways, airing on Sunday 10 December at 8.00pm on Channel 4, Julie boards the famous Great Western Railway, as she heads down to Cornwall. She stops first at Torquay, on the English Riviera, where she fondly recalls childhood holidays.
At Paignton, Julie boards the heritage steam line to Kingswear and its allegedly haunted castle.
In the fishing village of Polperro, Julie investigates smugglers’ tales and joins the RNLI on a practice run off St Ives. And in Penzance, she meets the extraordinary cake-makers at Peboryon Cakes, whose amazing creations can cost thousands. At the end of a packed trip, Julie catches the sleeper night train back to London.
