Falmouth is one of Cornwall's largest, most vibrant and diverse towns. It's home to Cornwall’s rich maritime heritage, the Woodlane Campus of Falmouth University, the internationally renowned Art Gallery, many sub-tropical gardens and Princess Pavilion, as well as being a leading south coast resort.

Falmouth Town Council was formed on local government reorganisation in 1974 from the former Falmouth Borough Council. The town received Royal Charter in 1661. Falmouth is formally twinned with Douarnenez in Brittany and Rotenburg (Wümme) in Germany and is encouraging informal cultural links with Villagarcia in Spain.

Please visit Falmouth’s official destination website www.falmouth.co.uk (link is external) for full details of where to stay, travel and resources, what to see and do, event and business listings, link to download Falmouth map and much more.
