Falmouth Through Time Paperback
Part of the Through Time series
Falmouth, situated on the beautiful River Fal, and with one of the finest natural harbours in the world, developed and prospered to become the base for the famous Packet Service between the seventeenth and nineteenth centuries.
It has a rich maritime history with many interesting buildings including Arwenack Manor, home to the infamous Killigrew family, who were responsible for the early growth of the town.
With the arrival of the railway, the town soon developed a strong commercial interest with the Falmouth Docks, founded in 1859, closely followed by the growth of tourism that is still important to the town today.
With excellent yachting facilities, safe bathing beaches and a wealth of attractions, the town offers a rich experience for its many visitors.
