We stayed in Penryn and travelled to Falmouth each day by boat, bought a Mussel card which gave us access to a number of boat trips and free parking, very good value and super easy

We took a ferry ride to Falmouth quayside and then hopped onto a second boat to take us across to St Mawes. The weather was amazing so therefore the boat trip really was a delight. We were able to drive my elderly mum down to...More
