Fascinating maritime town
A fascinating maritime town in south Cornwall with the third largest natural harbour in the world. Truro's a short drive to the north and the Lizard Peninsula to the south. Falmouth looks out onto the River Fal and Estuary and Falmouth Bay. Across the water is St Mawes Castle and the exceptional St. Mawes village.

Darwin returned from his famous trip on HMS Beagle to Falmouth in 1836, Dame Ellen MacArthur set off on hers more recently.

Local attractions
The town's packed with things to do and see. Walk, or drive, to Falmouth Pendennis Castle and Pendennis Point. There's the National Maritime Museum Cornwall, the harbour and beaches. There are art galleries and antique shops, restaurants and cafes. You can take boat trips across to St. Mawes or up the Rivers Fal and Truro to Cornwall's capital.

It's a great base from which to explore the south of Cornwall. Lizard Point is to the south, as is the exceptional Kynance Cove which is managed by the National Trust. St Michael's Mount makes an easy day drip as does St. Ives. It takes slightly longer to get down to Land's End but we'd head to the area for Sennen Cove Beach alone.
