Situated in the historic town of Penryn, the North coast of Newquay is 45 minutes away, and the vibrant port of Falmouth is just 10 minutes away by car, bus or train.

Things to do in Falmouth

For those new to the area, there are numerous points of interest in Falmouth including the Maritime Museum, Pendennis Castle on the headland and golden beaches with a range of watersports, including kayaking and paddleboard hire.

National Trust Gardens, and Trebah Gardens are also nearby. You can also head to Flambards theme park in Helston, the Seal Sanctuary in Gweek, or burn some energy with outdoor cliff climbing, rope courses and zip wire activities at Via Ferrata Cornwall, or bounce, slide and climb on an inflatable aqua course at Kernow Adventure Park. There are many more exciting attractions in Cornwall, as well as hidden places to discover off the beaten track.

Head into Falmouth and you’ll find plenty to see and do, with themed party nights in Events Square, live music and performances, a marching carnival, local markets, and more.
