Based in one of the most beautiful parts of the country, Falmouth consistently ranks as one of the best places to live in the UK. The town is set among stunning natural beauty in all directions, and you’ll find a rich mix of independent shops, bars, cafes and restaurants as well as a year-round programme of events.
With the great outdoors on your doorstep there is so much to see and do. Cornwall boasts over 400 miles of coastline and Falmouth itself is home to three beaches!
