Days out in Falmouth are fun, varied and can be enjoyed by everyone.

From a boat trip across the harbour, to a stroll down along the waterfront or a visit to the National Maritime Museum Cornwall, Falmouth is perfect for lazy days at the beach or action-packed adventure.

The third largest deep water harbour in the world, Falmouth and it’s active port are bustling with activity all year round. Falmouth plays host to a wide range of cafes, shops, galleries, restaurants and bars.

Falmouth has very little (and expensive) long stay, town centre parking and for this reason the Park & Float / Ride was established.

Visitors to the town can now help reduce congestion and pollution by using the 500 space car park on the outskirts of town at Ponsharden.

After parking hop aboard one of our classic ferries and enjoy an informative commentary on your way to Falmouth.

And the best bit about it is parking is free with your Fal Mussel Card!
