Holidays in Falmouth
A vibrant town with a working harbour at its centre, Falmouth is known for its thriving art scene and beautiful family beaches. Art galleries, independent shops, live music and showings of independent films foster a creative atmosphere and community spirit in the town, as do the many events run throughout the year. This includes Falmouth Week, a huge celebration including a sailing regatta, carnival, red arrows display, fairground rides, live music and more. The unique Sea Shanty Festival is a celebration of sea songs and shanties, with over 60 groups from around the world performing.
On the water, surfing, watersports and boat trips are available, and the town’s rich maritime heritage can be explored at the National Maritime Museum. Other attractions in the town include Pendennis Castle and the many different parks and gardens. Framed by two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, plus the Helford and Fal rivers, Falmouth is a great place to experience a true taste of Cornwall.
