About usSaltash is situated on the west bank of the River Tamar, which meanders through the Tamar Valley, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Its position on the border of Devon and Cornwall offers a first class base to explore both counties with a wide choice of transportation and accommodation options.
Saltash is home of the spectacular Royal Albert Bridge - designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel and completed in 1859, this stunning bridge is a 'must see' for anyone visiting the area. One of the greatest bridges in the world, it is unique in design, unequalled in engineering and graceful in appearance. Best views can be obtained from the pedestrian walkway of the Tamar Road Bridge (free access). The Road Bridge itself is worth a visit, being the first suspension bridge in the world to be both widened and strengthened whilst remaining open to traffic.
Saltash is a thriving town with a lively shopping centre offering excellent facilities, with independent shops selling unusual gifts and souvenirs. There are also pubs, restaurants and cafes and general retail shops for all your holiday needs.
