Fall In Love with Falmouth
Whilst we could spend all day writing down all of the things we love about our great town, we’ve made a list of our top five reasons. Discover for yourself and fall for Falmouth this summer.
1. Home of Sub-Tropical
Falmouth is considered one of the most unique climates in the UK. Year-round temperatures stay much more even and as a result the landscape is dotted with world heritage sites and sub-tropical manicured gardens that are the envy of many.
2. Food and Drink
Falmouth is home to some of the most highly acclaimed chefs in the county and nationally. It is home to one of the four 3 rosette restaurants in the entire county. Rastella Restaurant was awarded 3 Rosettes by the AA in 2018. Rastella, an old Cornish word for grill, has made its home at Merchants Manor and goes from strength to strength with its nature-inspired cuisine.
The south coast of Cornwall is home to the gentler way of life. Gentle lapping shores, blue flag beaches, farm land that tumbles to the water edge. Hire a small boat and explore the miles of creek with hidden gems, pirate coves and pubs with moorings.
Falmouth and the surrounding area is steeped in history. From Henry VIII’s imposing fortifications at Pendennis Castle, to the active role it played in the D-Day landings. It was home to the Cutty Sark for many years, not to mention the rich history of the packet ships and was home to more than one pirate.
Each year Falmouth plays host to a myriad of cultural events and festivals. With over 40 events in the calendar ranging from Oyster Festivals to Real Ale Celebrations, Falmouth Week, which celebrates sailing and all the south coast has to offer, through to live concerts, the red arrows, firework displays or for a spot of culture, how about a theatrical spectacular.
