Location and Surrounding Area
It may be difficult to tear yourself away from relaxing at The Gig, but if you are able, you’ll find all that makes a holiday in Cornwall sublime right at your feet.
Falmouth is renowned for its array of independent coffee shops, bars, pubs and restaurants, most of which are within walking distance from The Gig.
The beaches are but a 15 minute walk away, along the beautiful tree-lined approach of Arwenack Avenue. At the end of the avenue is Falmouth’s train station, with the maritime line connecting at Truro to Penzance, St Ives, and mainline services to London and beyond.
You’ll be a stones throw away from Events Square, a cultural hub in Falmouth playing host to the numerous festivals that grace the town annually. Here you’ll also find the National Maritime Museum Cornwall, a must-visit for anyone with an interest in boats.
Boat trips can be taken from the bottom of the hill at Customs House Quay, allowing you to explore your view in person. Ferries to St Mawes and Flushing cross throughout the day. Take a boat trip to the Helford river, or hire a boat and be a captain yourself for the day.
Situated just opposite the old ‘Falmouth School of Art’, should the Arts be on your agenda you’ll find numerous independent galleries within easy reach. The Poly, an arts venue with film, theatre and weekly jazz nights through summer is the perfect spot to while away an evening.
