Falmouth Town in Cornwall
Falmouth (Cornish: Aberfal) lies on the south coast of Cornwall unsurprisingly at the mouth of the River Fal. Its harbour and waterway, known as Carrick Roads, form the third deepest harbour in the world and was formed at the end of the last Ice Age when sea levels rose and drowned the river valley of its predecessor. Geologically, it is actually termed a ria. Arguably Cornwall's premier port, Falmouth has a strong maritime heritage which can be explored at National Maritime Museum. The town's location makes it the ideal base to tour Mid and West Cornwall.
The nearest source of local information is available from Falmouth Tourist Information Centre.
