Falmouth Library Safari

Friday 29 March 

The plan is to provide sufficient time to walk between the libraries with c.1hr at each (with the exception of Falmouth Marine School which is quite small!).  Some of the walking is hilly so please wear appropriate footwear and, if you anticipate accessibility issues, please get in touch prior to the day so that we can make arrangements. 


There is parking at either end of the route (Quarry Car Park close to The Moor or The Dell between Woodlane & the Maritime Museum).  These council car parks are free in Fridays in March.  The Falmouth Town railway station is close to the Dell.  All buses to Falmouth arrive at the Moor which is where we are starting.
