Falmouth is Cornwall's capital of cool with oodles of character to the place all year round. It's a bustling University town full of creatives and quirky locals. Because of this diverse mix, Falmouth is home to some of Cornwall's finest boutiques, coffee shops, pubs and restaurants and a full calendar of events.
Don’t miss The Fal River Festival in May; The International Sea shanty Festival in June; or the Falmouth Beer Festival in late October.
Falmouth's home to the World's third deepest natural Harbour (just beneath Menorca and Sydney.) Because Falmouth is surrounded by water it has its own mild micro-climate. Did I mention it's beautiful?! Falmouth is home to an abundant array of tropical plant life, beaches to die for, rowboats, working boats, super yachts and Tall Ships and a community like no other. There truly is something here for everyone.
