Relaxing walk
Jul. 2021
Enjoyable walk from the town centre to the sandy Gyllyvase Beach, along lovely small hotels and Mediterranean looking gardens and small parks.

Lovely seafront

On a nice July morning the boats on gleaming water looked great. Oh to be a millionaire ! Nice to see plenty of people, mainly I think tourists enjoying the views.

Nice bustling town centre with great independents.
May 2021
Very similar to Norwich ( our hometown) with all the independent shops and cafes, bustling lively high street with buskers and street bunting. The shops we're all mega cute and really friendly and there's plenty of pubs and eateries along the harbour front. The seafront promenade had cafes, music and ice creams. We visited twice whilst in Cornwall and had a great time on both occasions, the service in pubs and shops was extremely friendly. It's a great combination of cute harbour town whilst still being a bustling town centre. Plenty of parking a couple of minutes away from the centre including being able to pay via app and extend your stay without having to change the ticket on the car which is useful. Easily one of my favourite towns I've been lucky enough to visit.

It was a rainy day when we visited but the sea was calm and there were many boats bobbing around. Still pretty to visit even in bad weather!

As all good harbours & high streets should be
Sep. 2020
Leisurely stroll, great shopping, lovely town high street, plenty of pubs and some great places to eat, plus that view, so, nothing to be sniffed at all.

Lovely place - much better than St Ives!
Oct. 2020 • Family
Visited on a cold, rainy day so didn't get to enjoy Falmouth at its best, but despite this the place was still a delight. Great views and lots of lovely shops selling very individual and unique items. A good choice of cafes and restaurants too.

Parking a bit dicey. Ended up parking at the Maritime car park but would strongly recommend avoiding if possible - attempting to pay on exit is a nightmare!

Falmouth Seafront
Sep. 2020
We were lucky enough to stay in a private apartment overlooking the harbour in Falmouth for 2 weeks in September with favorable weather also. Although we were on holiday it is a great place to go for a day visit.

We not only had the view in the picture above every morning, it seemed every bar and restaurant along the high street and promenade had a similar view. Wow, just around the corner was Pendennis Castle which can be seen for miles and just across the bay St Maw's Castle can be seen.

Apparently the gun's stationed at these points defended our shores from the French hundreds of years ago & more recently during WW2.

I recommend a visit.

Vibrant shops and harbour
Sep. 2020 • Couples
Contrary to my impression this is not
one straight walk. You intermingle between the harbour and the shops. We parked at the Well Lane CP which was close to the shops but the harbour CP was cheaper, albeit remembering parking
places start to fill up fast after say 11. Found the harbour very tranquil. Fascinated how its the 3rd largest natural harbour in the world
