FALMOUTH TALL SHIPS FESTIVAL SUCCESS
1 September 2014
Falmouth Tall Ships Festival has been hailed a huge success.
Crowds poured into the town this weekend for the festival, with more than 45,000 people visiting Falmouth over the course of the week.
The undoubted highlight was the Parade of Sail on Sunday, when 42 sailing vessels departed Falmouth for Greenwich and London.
Visitors to our luxury Cornwall holiday cottages were in the crowd to watch the parade and said it was a phenomenal sight.
The event should have an effect on the tourism industry in Cornwall, with many people hailing it as a “great advert for the county”.
Here at The Valley we’re just delighted to have been able to offer our guests the chance to see an historic event take place.
