From sunset beach barbecues, to off-the-cuff creative happenings, from a weekday surf before studying, to a weekend spent plundering vintage fairs and craft boutiques, Falmouth and Penryn have a unique vibe perfect for the creative and curious.
With a DIY mentality and a sense of creative freedom pulsing through the sister towns' cultural undercurrent, you'll find a buzzing bar scene, a vibrant mix of live gigs and a glut of events and performances on offer. All this set within a welcoming ocean-flanked town, where every street you walk down and pub you stop in you'll see someone you know.
