Your guide to Falmouth

Welcome to Falmouth

The charms of this historic port town in southwest Cornwall have long been appreciated by sailors. Its deep-water docks sit on one of the largest natural harbours in the world; famous seamen, explorers, and yacht racers have hailed from here. Surrounded by beautiful countryside — from the estuaries of the Helford and Fal rivers to the Roseland Peninsula — it has attracted an art scene, too, resulting in some excellent galleries. On the headland to the south of the harbour sits the magnificent Tudor fortress of Pendennis Castle; beyond it, within easy walking distance of the town centre, are Gyllyngvase and Swanpool beaches, two of the four that the town boasts. Many beautiful gardens have been planted in and around the town, filled with subtropical plants that thrive in the Cornish climate, while the National Maritime Museum, in its award-winning building on the harbourside, hosts a stunning collection of exhibits including full-scale boats.

The best time to stay in a holiday rental in Falmouth

South Cornwall’s microclimate makes Falmouth a pleasant prospect for much of the year. Even its winters are comparatively mild, although you can experience Atlantic weather (wind and rain) any time of year. Spring, when the town’s gardens and its surrounding countryside are in full bloom, is particularly lovely. Plus, it’s less busy than the summer, when most of the sailing regattas take place. There’s also a popular spring festival held in March. June welcomes the Falmouth Sea Shanty Festival, and in August, Henri Lloyd Falmouth Week hosts the biggest regatta of the year. In autumn, temperatures dip a little but are still enjoyable, and in October the Oyster Festival celebrates the area’s wonderful seafood and cuisine.

Top things to do in Falmouth

Pendennis Castle

Built for Henry VIII in the mid-16th century, and paired with another fort in St Mawes, this coastal stronghold with its giant circular keep is an iconic image of the town. Besieged during the English Civil War, it was later used by the Victorians, and its guns even saw action during the two world wars. You can take a tour, or simply admire it from a distance, perhaps on one of the ferries.

Jacob’s Ladder

These 111 steps, which lead from Falmouth’s main square to an inn at their top, were built as a shortcut by the pub’s owner. The Ladder has proved an effective form of marketing as people from all over take the climb for the fabulous views of the harbour and the estuary — not to mention the beer you can enjoy as a reward.

St Mawes

The principal village on the Roseland Peninsula is a pretty place with a decidedly upmarket vibe — British royals have been known to frequent it. The scenic 20-minute ferry journey across the harbour makes it a great day trip. Beyond the village, you can explore the peninsula’s picture-perfect countryside and coastline.
