Falmouth working boat
Falmouth has remained one of the great names in world shipping since the Tudor times. Visitors arriving in Falmouth for the first time are apt to find the geography of the district very puzzling. This is largely because there are two fronts, one on the river, the other on the sea. The former extends from Penryn bridge to Pendennis Point and includes the narrow road through the main shopping centre, running from the Prince of Wales Pier to the Custom House; which, beginning as Market Street, later becomes Church Street and finally Arwenack Street. (See Town Plan.) 
 
This busy thoroughfare (one-way traffic) backs on to the river and here and there, from the small quays, slips and "opes" leading down to the water, glimpses of the busy harbour and docks can be obtained. From the Prince of Wales Pier and from Town and Customs Quays, there are grand views across to Flushing and extending round Trefusis Point across the Carrick Roads to the Roseland peninsula the other side of the extensive harbour. 
 
In between there is all the life, colour and
movement of a great port; ships of all types and sizes and of many nationalities, the smell of tarred rope, the scream of seagulls. This is the oldest part of Falmouth. It faces north-east, and straggles along the western bank of the Peuryn River and not the River Fal, as is commonly supposed. 
 
The more modern portion of the town, forming the sea-front, lies just across the neck of the Pendennis peninsula. The aspect here is in complete contrast to the river front. 
This is Falmouth the holiday resort; here is the seashore with its grand bathing beaches, gardens and pleasure grounds; here are seats and shelters which all the year round are more generously bathed in sunshine, than, probably, any others in Britain. 
 
From the left, or eastern side of the bay, rises the majestic wooded height of Pendennis, crowned by its compact and small castle. In the centre the gently-sloping sands of Castle Beach merge into a fascinating area of rock pools.
 
The town has a magnificent natural harbour which has contributed greatly to the town's prosperity and influence over the centuries. 
Places to visit  include Pendennis Castle and museum, Cornwall Maritime Museum, St Mawes Castle, Glendurgan Gardens (National Trust), an Art gallery and the Fal Estuary.
