A natural eye candy
Falmouth, a quiet city in the south-western end of England, is famous for it's beaches and the tide. It's also home to one of the leading Arts universities in the country and quite appropriately, has an unparalleled natural scenery.
Sometime back, when I had time and reason to return to my Alma mater, I found myself tracing a nostalgic trail. The seven and a half hour long train journey puts the place quite out of reach of what some may call, main England. Once you decide to be there, you are mostly stepping out of the hustle and bustle of a busy city life and enveloping yourself in the beauty of nature.
The train ride itself is a scenic one, best taken in day time, when there is enough light to enjoy the view out of your window. It would be apt to say that it is a journey right through the heart of Britain that lets you peek into the most intimate of moments. Moments, that would make you wonder if it was possible to live all of your life on this very train.
The train departs from Paddington station at London and you have to change the trains at Truro. There are trains running from Truro almost every half hour, with the last one around half past ten at night.
Falmouth is quite popular for its drives, beaches, surf and the sea sports. It is also home to one of Britain's oldest harbours and you can easily find a ship or two docked here. The Eden Project and the Land's End are also quite easy to get to. It's is also a popular honeymoon destination for couples who love to rent a cottage or stay in one of the many popular B&Bs.
