We started with a coffee as arrived early, spoilt for choice as all open early by the Maritime Museum. The promanade is great for a gentle flat stroll looking out at the harbour. The weather couldnt have been better when we were there which was...More

Very nautical, all sorts of craft. Ferries to many points of interest. You may even catch sight of a cruise liner or naval vessel being overhauled.

There are so many seafronts in Falmouth and all are lovely. There is the one by the harbour and the two wharfs, Custom House Quay and the Prince of Wales Quay. This is nice as there are lots of boats and ferries from these places....More

It’s a beautiful spot. I would have loved to have been able to spend more time here just to admire the view. It’s gorgeous. Lovely and clean and plenty of bins to leave your rubbish. I hope I can go back one day.

As well as the traditional seaside promenade from Gyllyngvase beach, along Castle beach and around Pendennis point, there is also a promenade of sorts in the town, going up the harbourside from the dock yard and past the new Maritime Museum complex to Custom House...More

Difficult to find seafront by car. Confusing one way system making it almost impossible to find the car parks. As if they do not want visitors. We were advised to take taxi rather than drive. Parking expensive. £1.50 per hour. Will not return.

Yes you can take dogs. Best to keep them on a lead as you are for the main part walking alongside main roads.

Not as far as I know - I've been coming here for 15 years and would have found some by now! Falmouth doesn't seem to be that sort of place - in fact we have only found an amusement arcade in Penzance so far.
