Falmouth is a town on the south coast of England in the historic county of Cornwall. Renowned for its thriving culture and natural beauty, the town benefits from a strong student population.
Pendennis Castle was constructed between 1540 and 1542 at the order of King Henry VIII. Deemed necessary in order to protect the nation against invasion by France and the Holy Roman Empire, the castle was built as an artillery fort capable of attacking oncoming ships. Today it is a major attraction in Falmouth and offers in-depth tours of its grounds.
The National Maritime Museum Cornwall sits on Falmouth harbour and features displays on everything from smuggling, fishing and sea rescue. Taking in the full sweep of Cornish maritime history, the museum is important to the local community who have been living off the sea for many generations.
Throughout the area, from The Packet Quays to Swanpool, Floom’s Falmouth flower delivery covers every part of town.
