Falmouth Harbour

Falmouth Harbour

Falmouth Harbour which includes the area of the Carrick Roads, is regarded as one of the world's largest natural harbours.

The Carrick Roads is not a motor lane or country road but a large inland waterway that empties into Falmouth Harbour.

While the town developed rapidly on seafaring trade in the 18th and 19th century, today it is a centre for boat building and repairs.
