Falmouth & The National Maritime Museum
Just under an hours drive from Sands Resort Hotel you will find the famous fishing port Falmouth for a fun filled day.
Park and Float – Park away from Falmouth town centre and take a picturesque 20-minute boat trip along the Penryn River to the National Maritime Museum and the town centre.
Explore the Narrow streets, some cobbled and alleys leading down to the waters edge. Check out Customs House Quay & the overlooking Customs House with its columnaded facade.
Falmouth has a wide selection of shops, many of whom have a nautical theme- from antique shops to second hand booksellers, to yachting outfitters to boutiques. Many centuries old inns to stop for a pint. Art galleries too.
Take a pleasure boat trip or explore Pendennis Castle.
In a prime position on Falmouth’s harbourside, is the Greenbank Hotel, stop here for afternoon tea. Originally an old coaching inn, this is where Kenneth Grahame developed his story the ‘Wind in the Willows’.
