Welcome to the Fal River, Cornwall’s most popular visitor destination. We invite you to visit and explore all this beautiful river has to offer and this is our guide to the best bits... enjoy. This picturesque Cornish river runs through an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is surrounded by award winning attractions, beautiful sub-tropical gardens and plenty of fun things to see and do. The best way to explore the river is with our great value hop-on hop-off travel pass, the Fal Mussel Card which gives you unlimited travel on the Fal River Links travel network of ferries, buses and trains that connect the river and its many attractions.

What makes this part of the world even better is the Fal River Links network. So you can leave your car at home and travel by ferry, bus or train – making the most of the stunning views on offer in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Fal Mussel Card makes it easy to explore the area and gives you so much flexibility in how you spend your day. Take a ferry trip across the Carrick Roads, cross the river on an iconic chain ferry or relax and watch the scenery go by from the train window, you can do all of this with the Fal Mussel Card. There’s so much to do around the Fal River that the Attraction Pass goes hand in hand with the Fal Mussel Card. The 1 day Attraction Pass is great if you’re making a flying visit but if you can stay for longer, a 2, 3 or 6 day pass is even better value and gives you unlimited access to some of the top attractions around the river.

FAL RIVER LINKS Fal Mussel Card

THE FAL MUSSEL CARD Fal Mussel Card Visitor Travel for less with the great value hop-on hop-off travel pass for the Fal River. The Fal Mussel Card allows you unlimited travel for a fixed period on ferries, buses and trains within the Fal River Links network. You get discounted travel on many of the services that connect the river and it is the best way to explore the Fal River and its many gardens, walks, riverside pubs and attractions.

SAVE MONEY A Fal Mussel Card can save you up to 50% on a standard fare and the more you use it, the more you save. You simply buy a card for 1, 2, 3 or 6 days and then you’re free to enjoy the Fal River at your own pace. “We used the Fal Mussel Card whilst on an October half-term holiday in St Mawes. It was our first visit to the area and we will certainly return, partly due to the availability of the Mussel Card. We only used the car once during our 9 day stay, and even then used the Fal Mussel Card for the King Harry Ferry for an evening trip to Truro to see the latest film at the cinema.”

WHERE CAN I BUY ONE? Ticket Offices: Cards are available from our ticket offices in Falmouth, St Mawes, Truro, Trelissick and the Falmouth Park & Float/Ride site. See page 14 for more ticket office information.

FREE all day parking with a Fal Mussel Card As well as the Float and Ride tickets, you can use your Fal Mussel Card to get free all day parking. Falmouth Park & Float/Ride is the perfect starting point for your Fal Mussel Card adventure, see p8. Falmouth has limited long stay parking and for this reason the Park & Float / Ride was established in 2003. Visitors to the town can now help reduce congestion and pollution by using the 500 space car park on the outskirts of town at Ponsharden.

Park and Float What better way to arrive in Falmouth than aboard a classic wooden ferry? After parking at Ponsharden take a leisurely trip down the Penryn River to Falmouth’s Custom House Quay. Ferries depart from the car park every 20 minutes. We love our ferries and we hope you do too!

Park and Ride Buses depart from the car park every 20 minutes and go direct to Falmouth’s High Street and Prince of Wales Pier. From the pier the Maritime Museum is a 10-15 minute walk through the centre of town.

The ferry provides an all year round service to over 162,000 visitors a year and is an absolute must for anyone visiting Cornwall. Passing the impressive castles of St Mawes and Pendennis, the ferry route takes you on a magical journey across the Carrick Roads. As well as the castles you will see many large ships, the working docks of Falmouth, Black Rock (a local isolated shipping hazard) and, if you’re lucky, some of the dolphins and basking sharks that regularly visit the harbour. The classic wooden ferries depart every hour during the winter and three times an hour during the summer. Capacity is never a problem as each ferry can carry up to 100 passengers and covered seating is provided in case we get some ‘Cornish Liquid Sunshine’. Safety is paramount and all our vessels and skippers are licensed by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency.

The King Harry Ferry is an iconic part of Cornwall’s history. Established in 1888 it connects St Mawes and the Roseland Peninsula with Feock, Truro and Falmouth by avoiding the alternative 27 mile route through Truro & Tresillian. One of only five chain ferries in England, it departs every 20 minutes from each side, 7 days a week and the ferry is a key transport link for visitors and locals alike.

The King Harry Ferry offers its passengers the chance to avoid miles of congested roads and once aboard you can get out and enjoy the slow river crossing which takes in one of Cornwall’s deepest and most beautiful rivers - the Fal River.

Think green The £2.8 million ferry has been built with minimal environmental impact as a primary design criteria. As a result the ferry runs on ultra efficient diesel engines that have cut emissions by over 75% and reduced noise pollution by over 80%.

How does it work? In order to guide the 350 tonne ferry back and forth in all weather conditions, the ferry’s 270m long chains have to be incredibly strong and tough.  With up to 80 crossings a day, 364 days a year, the chains undergo a huge amount of wear and have to be replaced regularly. After entering the ferry over small ‘jockey wheels’ at each end the chain is fed onto the main ‘drive wheels’ (You can see the chain through the glass windows in the deck) which pull the ferry across the river. These large wheels are over 2m in diameter and are driven by hydraulic motors, which in turn are powered by one of the ferry’s three diesel engines.

Aboard our flagship Moyana

Runs: All year Sailing times: On demand Website: www.falriver.co.uk/charters Email: charter@falriver.co.uk Telephone: 01326 741 194 /falrivercruises @falriver

Moyana is the flagship of our charter boat fleet. Built in 1954 by M W Blackmore’s in Bideford, she was commissioned by local boat operator Henry “Harry” Johns to join his Enterprise fleet. She was designed and built specifically for a life on the Fal River and for the last 60 years, this beautiful boat has transported visitors between Truro and Falmouth. She was treated to an extensive refurbishment in 2013 and can now carry up to 100 passengers in comfort.

BOOK NOW 01326 741 194 Please make sure you give plenty of notice if your trip is very important – we offer a first-come, first served policy and we try not to disappoint. Sometimes tidal and weather conditions can make this difficult – we will always offer an alternative solution.

The upper deck is perfect for making the most of the beautiful riverside scenery on lovely summer days and the interior saloon features a bar and TV screens and means Moyana is perfect for an evening cruise or for a trip when the weather is slightly less than perfect. Whatever the weather, Moyana’s skipper can provide a detailed and entertaining commentary on places of interest along the river. Moyana can be chartered for any occasion and will help you build wonderful memories of your wedding day or a special birthday celebration.

fal river Bus 326: Truro - Malpas U Info & Bookings: 01326 741 194 C FAL SE Y AR MU OU D SS R H

ER The 326 connects the E bustling city of Truro with the riverside village of Malpas.

EL

Only a couple of miles from the city centre, Malpas is a quiet and beautiful village at the confluence of the Truro and Tresillian Rivers and is well worth a visit. There are lovely walks from Malpas along the riverside to St Clement or Tresillian , see page 53 for more information.. Malpas is also a ferry stop for Enterprise Boats where you can catch a ferry for Trelissick Garden, St Mawes or Falmouth. At low tides, the ferry can’t reach Truro Town Quay so the 326 service also acts as a shuttle service for Enterprise Boats passengers. At other times, if you’d like to catch the ferry at Malpas, you’ll need to hoist the flag to request the boat to land.

FAL RIVER LINKS Travel Network Fal River has something for every season, every mood and every occasion. Whether its mouth-watering wholesome food by a roaring fire, shared with friends after a great winter stomp along the stunning countryside or a calming summer picnic supplied by local delis at the edge of the river as you challenge the family to a stone skimming competition. If you’re looking to expand your horizons there are hosts of stunning galleries showing local and nationally important work and museums that show you that history touches all of us. One of our favourites is National Maritime Museum Cornwall. Where else in the world can you jump inside a Sea King helicopter, climb a 100ft tower, learn to sail inside, go under the sea without getting wet and touch Ben Ainslie’s gold medal winning Olympic boat from the London 2012 games, all in one day?

St St Mawes Mawes Harbour looking across to Falmouth

VISIT ST MAWES The idyllic old world fishing village of St Mawes with its mild climate, fascinating history and stunning location is one of Cornwall’s best kept secrets. Sitting in the shelter of St Mawes Castle the small harbourside village enjoys a wide selection of waterfront cafés, bars, restaurants, ice cream shops and galleries and is an absolute must for anyone visiting Cornwall.

St Mawes Castle p77

Today, thanks to its idyllic location and rich heritage, the village’s main industry is now tourism and it is busy all year round.

Get wet Lamorran Garden, p91

History It was in 1536, probably in anticipation of the construction of St Mawes Castle, that a stone pier was built in St Mawes. It 60

wasn’t until 1854 that the St Mawes Pier & Harbour Company was formed and was granted an act of parliament to develop a new pier and deepen the harbour.   The harbour has always looked to the sea for its livelihood and to this day the town still has fishing boats working from the harbour and selling their produce on the quay. 

Place Ferry. p20

Sit on kayaks can be hired from the slipway in St Mawes during the summer months, a great way to explore the river and have some fun. See p79.

Skinner’s ales have won more awards than any other brewery in the West Country including a record three times supreme champion of the South West and in 2008, Betty Stogs was selected as the CAMRA Champion Best Bitter of Great Britain. A visit to the Brewery’s Tavern!

The perfect Cornish experience, a pasty and a Skinner’s pint on a Fal River cruise! See p29

Skinner’s only use the finest ingredients including whole hops (not the cheaper pellet alternative). The beer is made with local Cornish malted barley, grown within six miles of the brewery on three separate farms. This independent, family-run brewery in the capital of Cornwall has a 425 brewer’s barrel weekly capacity (122,400 pints). It brews the finest cask ale in Cornwall and is revered throughout the UK for the quality and distinct hoppy aromas of its beers.

Our guests expect good food on holiday and The Rosevine works hard with local suppliers to source fresh seasonal produce to bring simple yet elegant dishes to the table. It’s a pleasure to be a part of Cornwall’s exciting food scene – taking our pick from freshly caught Cornish fish, local meat and cheese, and foraged ingredients from hedgerow herbs to blackberries. Located right on the coast, just above Porthcurnick beach, we are extremely lucky to be in this idyllic part of the UK, where a trip on the King Harry Ferry transports you to a calmer side of Cornwall, with a host of hidden places to discover. From a snack, cream tea, Cornish tapas to a 3 course dinner, guests dine in the knowledge that everything is local and fresh, whilst enjoying stunning sea views over the bay.
