Falmouth itself is an up and coming town, hosting many international sailing events, and is the home of the highly regarded Art School and National Maritime Museum. A haven for holiday makers who enjoy its fabulous beaches and scenic river trips from its many wharfs and quays. The town also offers a profusion of quality restaurants and shops and the ever increasing student population ensures a dynamic vibrancy as do the various festivals and events that occur during the year. Falmouth has been frequently voted as one of the most desirable towns to live in in the whole of the UK.
