Great things to do in Falmouth

Historic Falmouth

Founded in 1613 by Sir John Killigrew, and defended by the Henry VIII-comissioned Pendennis Castle, Falmouth sits at the mouth of the River Fal.  Today you can visit the wonderful National Maritime Museum to find out more about its history. Falmouth has a lovely selection of shops and places to eat and drink, as well as several wonderful beaches – the best known being Castle Beach which has a café and beach shop open during the Summer, or the larger and sandier Gyllyngvase Beach, which has a large café and kiosk open all year round.  Just over the river from Falmouth is the picturesque village of Flushing, and just around the Carrick Roads is Mylor village and the busy Mylor Harbour, where you will find the ever popular Café Mylor – great for a coffee or something to eat (and a favourite with Tim’s late mother). A few miles along the coast from Falmouth is the lovely village of Mawnan Smith, with its idyllic Church and access to the truly beautiful Helford River, with wonderful beaches and walks. Close by are the tropical gardens of Glendurgan, and Trebah which was once the home of one of Cornwall’s most famous sons, Donald Healey, the co-creator of the Austin Healy sports car. Nearby and overlooking the river, is the very impressive house and gardens of another famous son of Cornwall, and former Queen drummer, Roger Taylor.
