Falmouth port and docks are a hive of activity all year round.
Falmouth harbour is the third largest natural harbour in the world. Immersed in maritime history and sculpted by the sea, Falmouth is one of Cornwall’s most popular towns and a great place to spend time.
It plays host to a wide range of cafes, shops, galleries and bars as well as being home to two of Cornwall’s top attractions; the National Maritime Museum Cornwall and Pendennis Castle.
You’re never far away from a celebration in Falmouth and all year round there are a series of thrilling festivals which celebrate Cornish life.
There’s the Spring Garden Festival, Falmouth Food and Drink Week, Henri Lloyd Falmouth Week, Falmouth Oyster Festival, the Sea Shanty Festival and the Fal River Festival.
There's also three great beaches, all offering something different.
You can drive there by catching the King Harry Ferry or you can hop on the passenger ferry from St Mawes. Both run 364 days of the year.
