Location and Surrounding Area
You can arrive at Palm Cove, park the car and leave it in the same spot for your entire holiday if you wish. Falmouth town is just a ten-minute walk away and from here you can catch ferries and boats to St Mawes, the Helford, Truro and Flushing. Feel the wind in your hair and enjoy the sights of Falmouth from the water.
Falmouth enjoys a vibrancy throughout the year, including, to name a few events, the Sea Shanty Festival in June, the Oyster Festival mid-October and Falmouth Week in August.
With a maritime history rooted in and around the water it’s no wonder the National Maritime Museum Cornwall, on Discovery Quay, is a firm favourite with visitors. Pendennis Castle, Henry VIII’s finest coastal fortress, perched high on the point is another interest point, or at least worth a stroll around the perimeter for the wonderful views.
No visit to this area is complete without a day on the unspoilt Helford River, just a short drive, or a 90 minute walk from Falmouth. Take a picnic, or grab a bite to eat at the waterside Ferry Boat Inn, at Helford Passage. For the rugged, breath taking coastal vista walks head further west to The Lizard. St Ives and its charming arts scene are best visited in spring and autumn. The Eden Project is 45 minutes away and a real treat for the senses.
