  Falmouth is investing in it's future and is rapidly becoming an international centre for watersports and sailing. The first commercial hotel was built there in 1865 and the International Maritime centre is set to open in 2001. The busy town centre contains many of the expected high street name alongside specialist craft shops, individual specialists in all things maritime, and gift shops for the tourist. The town offers a range of opportunities for the visitor from the pleasure boats and ferries in the estuary to the futuristic 'Ships and Castles' Leisure Pool. There is a wide range of accommodation to suite all tastes and pockets all within easy reach of the amenities. Falmouth has the benefit of an extremely mild climate which enables many unexpected plants to flourish in the area, including Banana trees growing in the open at Fox Rosehill public Gardens. The town centre contains several listed buildings including the King's Pipe where contraband tobacco was burned during the days of the smugglers.

Boats can be hired and ferries taken across the estuary to Flushing, Truro, St Mawes and the Helford Passage. The more adventurous may charter yachts by the day from local businesses. In season a road train travels a continuous route linking the town, beaches and castle and Blue Badge Guides lead walks in the area. - more information may be obtained at the Tourist Information Centre.
