Falmouth Travel Guide
Tourism is the mainstay of Falmouth’s economy, and justifiably so, with 6 fine beaches,
numerous creeks for sailing enthusiasts, historic castles and some spectacular
surrounding countryside. Fishing trips run from the town quays to outlying
wrecks, shark grounds or just around the harbour for a spot of family mackerel
Cornwall’s sub tropical gardens are world famous, two of the best are
very close to Falmouth, Trebah
both managed by the National Trust. The Seal Sanctuary at
Gweek is a short drive away from the town.
Falmouth has a lively shopping centre; the long, narrow main street is an eclectic mix of the High Street big
boys and dozens of small interesting, food, gift, New Age, surf, music and
clothes shops. Warrens Pasty
shop is a must for an authentic Cornish pasty. Falmouth has no shortage of restaurants,
and as one would expect many offering good local seafood.
