Falmouth Uncovered

Falmouth Uncovered is a historical walking tour that peels away the centuries and reveals Falmouth as it used to be — a raucous melting pot of pirates, sailors and adventurers. 

This is a history tour with fire in its belly, and with gripping stories for grown-ups and fun activity sheets for children, there is something for everyone to enjoy. There’s nowhere else in the world quite like Falmouth, and after you’ve experienced the tour you’ll never see it in quite the same way again. 

By experiencing Falmouth Uncovered, you’ll also be helping to make Cornwall the best it can be — 10% of every ticket is donated to local charities. 

Falmouth Uncovered is a tour that goes beyond just offering information or facts. It’s an experience that aims to fire up the imagination and leave visitors feeling excited about this unique place.

There is no doubt that Falmouth is a special town, with its beautiful viewpoints, creative independent businesses and rich selection of memorable eateries, but there is more to experience of Falmouth in its unique history. This Cornish town has a distinctive story to tell and hearing it can help enrich anybody’s visit by splashing some extra colour over our quays, alleys and pubs. 

If you’re a fan of vibrant storytelling, grisly and funny tales and knowing all the dark and juicy secrets before anyone else, this is the best way to get to know Falmouth town. 

This is a family-friendly activity where children aged between 0 – 12 go free. There are also activity sheets for the little ones with questions about the tour as well as a chance to draw the best ship they can imagine. 

Learn where to go for the best pasties in town, the tastiest local food and drink and the top days out in the area — wherever you would like guidance Falmouth Uncovered can offer their thoughts as you make your way through the town.  

The tour deliberately takes you away from the general hubbub of the high street to the quieter streets above, where you can take in the far-reaching views of the harbour and the opposite bank of Cornish villages. 

Falmouth has a past unlike anywhere else in the country and Uncovering Falmouth finds unending joy in communicating this to visitors.
