King Harry Ferry

The King Harry Ferry connects St Mawes and the Roseland with Feock, Truro and Falmouth and is an iconic part of Cornwall’s history.

 

Route :: Feock - Philleigh
Runs :: 7 Days a week all year round
Info & Bookings :: 01872 862312
Sailing Time :: 10 mins
Distance :: 300m

Established in 1888, it connects St Mawes and the Roseland Peninsula with Feock, Truro and Falmouth by avoiding the alternative 27 mile route through Truro & Tresillian.

Each year the King Harry Ferry saves 5 million car miles, 1.7 million kg of CO2 and ¾ of a million litres of fuel. It carries 300,000 cars every single year.

Find the ferry on Facebook and join in with ferry-fans from all around the world.

King Harry Ferry Service Map

One of only five chain ferries in England, it departs every 20 minutes from each side, 7 days a week and the ferry is a key transport link for visitors and locals alike.

The King Harry Ferry offers its passengers the chance to avoid miles of congested roads and once aboard you can get out and enjoy the slow river crossing which takes in one of Cornwall’s deepest and most beautiful rivers – the Fal River.

The new ferry with its glass side, chain viewing windows and touch screen information display is combining state of the art technology with a traditional friendly service.
