Falmouth enjoys rare natural advantages: It is the first and last port of the English Channel and possesses the world’s third largest natural harbour, which in turn adjoins major shipping lanes to Europe.

Situated in one of the most picturesque parts of Britain, the historic port has many attractions that include first-class hotels, and fine restaurants and beaches.


Travel Routes

Greatly improved transportation has brought Falmouth closer to business and industrial centres in the UK and Europe. Continuous improvement of truck routes, new roads and by-passes have made Britain’s motorway network easily accessible.

Other modes of transportation include air and sea. There are scheduled daily flights between London and Newquay, which is approximately 48 km from Falmouth.

In addition, a fast train network connects Falmouth to London in less than five hours.

Finest Facilities

The port of Falmouth is a major bunker supply base. Through Tamlyn Shipping's affiliate, World Fuel Services, the port offers fuel oil, gas oil and marine diesel, 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.

Deliveries can be made offshore in the deep and sheltered Falmouth Bay. Vessels under 203m LOA can be supplied in the Carrick Roads, which provides additional shelter from most wind directions.
