Cruises to Cornwall (Falmouth)

About Cornwall (Falmouth)

King Arthur was born here and the BBC's "Poldark" was filmed here. So it's no surprise that Cornwall is a world-famous destination for cruisers seeking adventure and romance in the rugged English countryside. Cornwall cruises anchor in Falmouth -- one of the largest natural harbors in the world -- and popular shore excursions include everything from beach explorations to Tudor castle tours.

This Southwest England county on the Fal Estuary is home to ancient villages, gorgeous vineyards, immaculately kept gardens and a spectacularly rugged coastline with pristine beaches. Larger ships must anchor offshore, but smaller ships may dock at the County Wharf in Falmouth. Don't miss a visit to the massive National Maritime Museum, which has a lookout from which you can take in dramatic views of the harbor.

I had a hard time finding reviews of this port, so I plan to take some time with this review. The actual port of Falmouth itself is industrial and not terribly inviting. I was given to understand that the port... Read More
