Case Study

A family of five are coming to visit the Fal River for the day. They want to park in Falmouth and then catch the ferry to St Mawes and go on to Place to visit St Anthony's Lighthouse. Parking and their ferry journeys will normally cost £50.50. With a family Fal Mussel Visitor Card it will cost them £41 and they'll have a great family day out with six ferry crossings for all five of them for under £50.

We Love… Roamer Rose

We Love… Roamer Rose

From 9 June

What we loved most meeting Kay at Roamer Rose was how unique she was. In a world of fashions and trends, so slavishly following the catwalk and the magazines as they tell us what’s in vogue, Roamer Rose is about embracing the original, being a one off. Truly embodying your unique difference. We love this.
