It’s a beautiful spot. I would have loved to have been able to spend more time here just to admire the view. It’s gorgeous. Lovely and clean and plenty of bins to leave your rubbish. I hope I can go back one day.

Difficult to find seafront by car. Confusing one way system making it almost impossible to find the car parks. As if they do not want visitors. We were advised to take taxi rather than drive. Parking expensive. £1.50 per hour. Will not return.

After a great tea a the Falmouth Hotel we all went for a nice walk along Falmouth along the promenade and through the town. Just what was needed after our afternoon tea.

As a Cornishman I love to come back to the harbour with its unique variation of boats from all over the world. I could sit out in the sun for hours, free parking overlooking the docks or having an ice cream at Pendennis Point. Remember...More

Yes you can take dogs. Best to keep them on a lead as you are for the main part walking alongside main roads.

Not as far as I know - I've been coming here for 15 years and would have found some by now! Falmouth doesn't seem to be that sort of place - in fact we have only found an amusement arcade in Penzance so far.
