Cornwall (Falmouth), England

England's southwest corner is steeped in legend and history. Tintagel Castle in Cornwall is the traditional birthplace of King Arthur. Falmouth, which boasts a superb deep-water harbour - the third-largest in the world - shares the Cornish coast's colorful history of shipwrecks, smuggling, and privateering. Cornwall is scenic England at its best, with superb seascapes, picturesque harbours, and countryside of green fields and hedgerows, quaint villages and low-slung granite farmhouses.

Cornwall's natural beauty has long made it a draw for British vacationers.

Note: Your ship will anchor in Falmouth and use launches to transport all passengers ashore.
