Welcome to Falmouth


Holidays in Falmouth

Situated on the coast, Falmouth benefits from four beautiful beaches, including one Blue Flag beach, Gyllyngvase Beach. The seaside town is home to the popular National Maritime Museum Cornwall, the historic Pendennis Castle, a selection of tropical gardens and a plethora of attractions to keep you entertained throughout your stay.

Holiday in Falmouth and experience ‘car free’ days out, enjoying transport links from the town by bus, rail and boat. Visitors can take pleasure boat cruises around the Fal estuary or along the beautiful Helford River. Take the ferry to Truro or St Mawes, and you’ll be able to experience the beautiful scenery along the way.

Many people visit Falmouth for the breath-taking scenery and tropical gardens, and with four major gardens in Falmouth and a further three close by, you’ll be spoilt for choice!

From Falmouth, you can also enjoy many boating activities, including shark fishing, sailing, sea safaris and water sports; a boater’s paradise!

Did you know...

Pendennis Castle was built by Henry VIII to protect the Carrick Roads from invasion!

Things to do in Falmouth

Pendennis Castle

A holiday to Falmouth wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Pendennis Castle and the National Maritime Museum; experience both to learn more about Falmouth’s history. Find out more on our blog: A day out at Pendennis Castle.

Via Ferrata

Conquer your fears with an exhilarating day out at Via Ferrata Cornwall! Located in one of Cornwall's historic granite quarries just outside of Falmouth, you'll be able to climb the 'Iron Stairway', ascend cliff faces, cross high wire bridges and tackle high challenges, before taking the zip wire back to ground level! You're sure to experience a memorable, adrenalin-filled day out!

Take a look at our blog, where some of the team at Aspects Holidays experienced the thrill for themselves: A Day out with Via Ferrata Cornwall.

Perfect for all seasons

The town has a rich tradition of hosting a year-round programme of events, from sailing regattas to live music and an abundance of food and drink festivals. The Fal River festival takes place each year in May, with events taking place in Falmouth, Truro and the Roseland Peninsula celebrating the culture and history of this Cornish river. 

The pure volume of things to do in and around Falmouth means that you are promised an eventful stay, whatever time of the year you chose to visit.
