Falmouth Uncovered History Tour 

Falmouth Uncovered runs acclaimed walking tours that celebrate this town's colourful past. Our aim with each tour is always the same: to tell stories that transform how our guests see Falmouth forever.

In 2023 we won the Bronze Experience of the Year at the Cornwall Tourism Awards.
