Wander from your door along the banks of the River and towards the town where Falmouth has embraced it's maritime roots and has sensitively added more modern order with a host of independent shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. Discovery Quay is well worth a visit as luxury yachts take shelter in the marina, boutique shops and bars centre around a landscaped piazza.
