Saltash is situated on the west bank of the River Tamar across the river from Plymouth.
Saltash was founded as a market town by the lord of Trematon Castle in the 12th century.
Enter Cornwall by road across the Tamar Bridge, or go by train across the Royal Albert Bridge built by Isambard Kingdom Brunel - Marc Isambard Brunel (1769-1849)
One of the first sites as you cross the bridge is the colurfully painted Union Inn with its Union Jack painted facade and murals. There is a pleasant shopping high street in the heart of the town.
