Falmouth Information, Cornwall 

Falmouth, on the south coast of Cornwall, is a picturesque town right at the mouth of the River Fal. Most famous for its shipping industry, which is hardly surprising when it benefits from being the third deepest natural port in the world. Sheltering behing the Lizard Peninsula, offering shelter to passing trade. The River runs all the way up to Truro and offers a host of lovely sightseeing opportunities by road and water. The town itself is easily accesible by road and train, and is becoming more and more popular for holiday rentals. It has all the facilities you would expect from a small town as well as lots of lovely local gift shops, galleries and family fun attractions within easy reach.

The town offers a great 'Park and Float' scheme in association with Fal River Links, offering a rare opportunity to arrive by boat. They also offer great trips around the River and the Bay, going down to Helford Passage and up to Truro. On the south of the town at Gyllyngvase there is the most superb sandy beach complete with up-market beach cafe! The National Maritime Museum Cornwall on Events Square offers a fantastic history into the Port of Falmouth, including a display of the Packet Ships. Many transatlantic races start/finish from Lizard Point, and the harbour is the first/last port of call. Ellen MacArthur stopped in Falmouth after completing her record breaking solo navigation of the globe in 2005. In 2012 the J Class Yachts are hosting a fantastic regatta week in late June. It will be the first time in history that more than four of the yachts have raced together in a fleet.
