Falmouth Life and Visitor Travel Tips

(Falmouth, Cornwall, England, UK)

Image nearbyActively marketing itself as 'the holiday resort with everything', Falmouth is much more than simply a popular tourist destination. Life here still revolves around the port, which remains busy at most times, with arriving ships and pleasure cruises. However, tourism does remain an integral part of the local industry in Falmouth and locals never underestimate its importance.

The numerous shopping streets around Falmouth town centre are often busy, with both locals and visitors. There is often something of interest around the nearby Prince of Wales Pier, where many boat trips leave to travel around the River Fal and its attractive tributaries.
