Falmouth is a bustling harbourside town growing in reputation as one of the most desirable places to live in the whole of the UK. The centre boasts a profusion of high quality independent shops nestled between high street stores, galleries, cafes and restaurants. Henry VIII's Pendennis Castle marks the entrance to what is the world's third deepest natural harbour and is now home to the National Maritime Museum.

The colourful harbour plays host to many sailing events and transatlantic races including the Tall Ships race. Falmouth's renowned seafront is within a short ten minute walk and is home to Gyllyngvase's blue flag beach and popular café.
Falmouth is now a University town, expanded from the original Art School along Woodlane. There is a popular primary school nearby and Falmouth secondary school can be found along Trescobeas Road. Penmere railway station is located close by which is a branch line providing access onto the neighbouring town of Penryn (University Campus) and onto Truro where it links with the national rail network.
