Today takes advantage of the great ferry system in and around Falmouth. First board a ferry from Falmouth to the wonderful Trelissick Gardens, perched at the head of the Fal Estuary. After exploring here take another very short ferry ride to Philleigh on the St Mawes side of the Fal River and then walk down the Roseland Peninsula via the beautiful 13th century church of St Just in Roseland to St Mawes, from where you board a ferry for the short ride back to Falmouth.
