Falmouth in general Reviews
Newest Review: ... gets you quickly into the centre of Falmouth and journeys every 30 minutes. And I must say a wonderful commentary while we on the boat going into Falmouth. Once in Falmouth you have the National Maritime Museum in a new development on the seafront with some shops and restaurants, although half the shops there seemed empty, not sure if that's the effect of the credit crunch! As you go the other way into Falmouth the windy main street is full of shops, ranging from the tourist and boutique shops you get in Cornish towns to the High Street favourites such as Boots, New Look, Greggs, among others. There was a Woolworths, still proudly empty ... more

We went to Falmouth for half a day trip after while on holiday in Newquay this July, trying to go to the bigger places in Cornwall. We decided to go into the park and ride outside Falmouth as there seemed a huge emphasis on trying to get tourists to park in it and not go into the town in cars. In the end we decided to do the Park and Float service into Falmouth, which was £11 for 2 of us and a car and a return journey by boat right into the centre of Falmouth.

Well Newquay is great for surfing, Truro has a cathedral, St Ives is a haven for art lovers so what’s poor old Falmouth got to offer, apart from numerous pubs and pasty shops? Well in my view Falmouth has got a lot to offer (although I might be a bit biased because this is where I grew up). Falmouth is a natural harbour situated on the south-west coast of Cornwall. Shipping is a very important part of Falmouth’s heritage. During the mid 18th century Falmouth was one of the premier ports in the world. This legacy can be seen in many of the pub names: The Clipper, The Cutty Sark, The Pirate, and The Admiral (I think some of the names might have been ... Read the complete review
