extends along the eastern face and is ideal for a morning coffee while soaking in the nautical air and admiring the ridiculous view.

Falmouth has always had strong maritime links, there were two castles built during the reign of Henry VIII, Pendennis, just above the Lookout and St Mawes castle on the eastern shore of the Carrick Roads, they were constructed to protect the harbour from the Spanish fleet, as this is the largest natural harbour in the western approaches of the English Channel. The town embraces this history and nautical trades with many marine businesses based in the area. Falmouth has a growing student population which has made the town itself very vibrant, with an excellent variety of shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants. The Roseland Peninsula is a ferry trip away and is well worth a day trip, explore the picturesque villages of St Mawes and Portscatho and the idyllic church at St Just in Roseland surrounded by immaculate temperate gardens. The Lizard is also an experience from the majesty of Kynance Cove to the brutality at Lizard Point.

The Roseland Peninsula is a boat ride away on the iconic blue ferries, or if you want to explore the further afield take the King Harry car ferry. The traditional fishing villages of St Mawes and Portscatho are a delight, although now the fishing industry has been replaced by boutique tourism, there are many fine local pubs and restaurants, art galleries aplenty and if walking is your thing then a multitude of glorious coastal walks, with castles, lighthouses, golden sandy beaches, secluded coves and majestic promontories all within touching distance of the sea, be it azure blue and crystal clear, or raging angry with crashing surf, every day on this stretch of the coastline is an experience you will not forget.

The Lizard itself is magnificent, lunch in one of the cafes overlooking the point is an experience you will not forget, Kynance Cove in its magnificent splendour, Goonhilly Downs and the radio telescopes, Gweek and it's seal sanctuary, Poldark Mine, the list is endless.

There are a tremendous range of beautiful gardens across this part of Cornwall, all making the most of the sub-tropical climate. these include, Trelissick Gardens, Enys Gardens, Trebah and Glendurgan, they are all well worth a visit, as is the old dynamite factory at Kennal Vale, a stunning valley with derelict waterwheels and a plethora of leats that fed them with little waterfalls, on a sunny day this is one of the most picturesque spots in the county.
