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 fishing.

Cornwall’s sub tropical gardens are world famous, two of the best are very close to Falmouth, Trebah and Glendurgan, 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.
