Places to eat & drink in Falmouth.

The ever-enthralling resort of Falmouth - otherwise known as Pennycomequick - lies at the mouth of the River Fal on Cornwall's idyllic south coast, the so-called Cornish Riviera, and looks out onto the world's third largest natural harbour.

An important port since the days of the Tudors, it is guarded both by Henry VIII's angular Pendennis Castle and St Mawes Castle (1543).

A Ness-style, hump-backed sea monster said to lurk in the bay has allegedly been sighted many times.

The town only became a holiday centre with the arrival of the railways but before that pioneered the use of mail boats from the Continent. Britain's defeat of the French at the Battle of Trafalgar, and the death of Admiral Nelson, are said to have been first announced here.

Curiously, Falmouth was the inspired creation of Sir John Killigrew in the early 1600s. He had been urged to build it by Sir Walter Raleigh, a man well aware of its strategic position. On the harbourside is the award-winning National Maritime Museum Cornwall.
