Things to do in Falmouth
Falmouth has an abundance of things to do, but the not to be missed ones are easily a visit to the Maritime Museum, a boat trip with Enterprise Boats, a lazy wander around the Falmouth Art Gallery (one of the leading galleries in the South West) and a “dip your toes in the water” moment at the stunning Gyllyngvase Beach (Falmouth’s largest sandy stretch, by no stretch of the imagination).
Then there are the world-class events that attract people from across the globe. Don’t miss the Henri Lloyd Falmouth Week, Falmouth Sea Shanty Festival, Falmouth Spring Festival or the very famous Falmouth Oyster Festival.
