Back in August my husband and I travelled from London to Falmouth, Cornwall. It was absolutely beautiful, I loved the colourful houses, shops and cafes, the beaches and the coffee shops.
Falmouth is famous for its harbour. Together with Carrick Roads, it forms the third deepest natural harbour in the world, and the deepest in Western Europe. It has been the start or finish point of various round-the-world record-breaking voyages.
Any who, without further a do, here’s 7 reasons why you need to visit Falmouth.
1. Gylly beach
Gylly beach is absolutely stunning! It’s a must visit if you’re planning to visit Falmouth. Sadly the weather was a bit all over the place when we went so we didn’t spend too much time at the beach, but it was lovely to sunbathe for an hour or so.
2. The colourful town
Falmouth town is so so gorgeous. Expect lots of colourful shops, cafes and coffee shops.
3. The food is amazing
The food is absolutely incredible. Do check out Indidog for brunch, The Stable for pizza and cider, Harbour Lights for fish and chips and Pennycomequick for an amazing roast.
4. The pubs are cool
Falmouth has some really quirky pubs – Pennycomequick is a lovely choice. I tried a Cornish gin with fever tree tonic and it was lush. Also, the tables are spread out due to Covid which I always think is good to know.
5. The coffee shops
Falmouth has some great coffee shops, you can read my 4 coffee shops to try here if you’re interested. Beacon Coffee was my fave – highly recommend popping by for an oat milk latte to go.
6. The University
Falmouth is known for its university which specialises in creative arts! I didn’t see that many students in August, but that’s because of the Summer break, plus due to Covid.
7. You don’t have to get on a plane
The great thing about UK destinations like Cornwall is you don’t have to get on a plane! With this pandemic going on more and more people are travelling around the UK. I must admit I’m scared to get on a plane again but when the time comes, I’ll have to just face it.
So that’s 7 reasons why you need to visit Falmouth, it’s such a pretty town and I highly recommend eating your heart out and exploring the colourful town.
