Around Falmouth

Falmouth is one of the foremost holiday destinations in the UK offering everything from superb, clean beaches to sailing, cliff walking and a bustling town centre with a wide range of shops. Falmouth also has a large number of pubs and restaurants including the Rick Stein Fish and Chip shop in Events Square.

There are a wide range boat trips available taking you out into the lovely Falmouth bay or up the beautiful Fal Estuary to the county town of Truro. You can also take the passenger ferry over to St Mawes on the lovely Roseland Peninsula. Falmouth has a long maritime tradition dating back to the days of the tea clippers and there are regular marine events staged throughout the season ranging from gig and yacht racing to races between the local gaff rigged working boats. Numerous epic voyages have started and finished in Falmouth. Ellen McArthur landed at the end of her record breaking round the world trip in Falmouth.

As a result of this long tradition, Falmouth has a branch of the National Maritime Museum located by the harbour. This is a superb facility with a wide range of exhibits together with cafe, shop and observation tower overlooking the town and harbour. We also have the J Class Yachts Regatta returning to Falmouth in June 2015. This will be a superb five day event featuring some of the greatest yachts ever to sail in UK waters. The J Class Yachts have their roots in the Americas Cup and the vessels taking part are some of the largest and most spectacular yachts in the world. There will be a series of races taking place in Falmouth Bay over the five days. There will also be a wide range of shore based events backing up the yacht racing. Book with us early to avoid disappointment.

Falmouth has several lovely and beautifully maintained gardens and Chellowdene is located within walking distance of both Queen Mary Gardens and the Princess Pavilion with its lovely bandstand and free entertainment on most summer evenings. There are also several gardens within a short drive including Trebah, Glendurgan and Trelissick.
