Port Information

Rare Natural Advantages

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.

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.
