I was at Falmouth College of Arts back in the ’90’s, before the Tremough campus opened, when it was just the tiny little Woodlane college tucked away in amongst the tropical refines of Fox Rosehill Gardens.
I loved it here, the intimacy of the town, being within walking distance of the college, town, beaches. And whilst not favourable to cyclists, the geography is brilliant for amazing vistas. I had almost forgotten how much so, until hunting for a parking space the other week I decided to swing by Wodehouse Terrace. The views are staggering, and on the day that I was here the sun was draped in cloud and the water down in the Penryn River and docks a deep aqua blue.
There are a few narrow public gardens hanging to the hillside, with sets of steps down onto the main high street drag, with benches to sit and admire the views. And a very aptly named pub, The Seaview Inn, which is great on a hot summers day when the working boats are racing out in Falmouth Bay.
