Highlights

Falmouth Uncovered is a historical walking tour that peels away the centuries and reveals Falmouth as it used to be — a raucous melting pot of pirates, sailors and adventurers. This is a history tour with fire in its belly, and with gripping stories for grown-ups and fun activity sheets for children, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. There’s nowhere else in the world quite like Falmouth, and after you’ve experienced the tour you’ll never see it in quite the same way again.
