Although the Cornish town of Falmouth, England, is very pretty and one of the least touristy in the area, the only real attraction is Pendennis Castle, built by Henry VIII to guard the harbor. The harbor is Europe's deepest and still the focal point of the town. The art college and a long history of Cornish painting give the town a creative air.
Located 45 mi/70 km southwest of Plymouth, Falmouth as a single destination isn't really worth the trip, but it makes a nice stop on a tour of Cornwall.
