Falmouth Harbour


The Observatory Guest House, Falmouth, Cornwall is in a very central location close to both Falmouth town centre and our Blue Flag beaches and sea front. The bustling town centre with a great range of shops, restaurants and galleries is an easy ten minute walk away. The beaches and sea front are also around ten minutes walk away.


You can drive to Cornwall either on the A30 or the A38. You can also use the scenic A39 if traveling from North Devon. When you reach Truro, take the A39 on to Falmouth. Entering Falmouth, pass McDonalds on the left and follow the road uphill to the traffic lights next to the Majestic Wine Warehouse. Go straight ahead at the lights and then straight ahead at the next roundabout. You will then see the Observatory on your left and the entrance to our car park is approximately ten metres from the exit of the roundabout.
