History buffs should wander up to St Mawes Castle, constructed by Henry VIII between 1540 and 1542 and beautifully preserved with views over the Carrick Roads and beyond.
Foodies will be spoilt for choice here as there's a great choice of places to eat from fine dining to fish and chips in the paper sitting on the harbour wall or for the cooks amongst you pick up some freshly caught fish from the stand in the harbour and rustle up a special meal in. The passenger ferry leaves from the harbourside here taking travellers over the waters to the maritime town of Falmouth where you will find an eclectic assortment of shops, three stunning beaches and a maritime museum which is well worth a look.
If you decide to travel further afield the mighty biomes of the Eden Project make for an interesting day out, or perhaps The Lost Gardens of Heligan, lost in time since WWI, discovered 30 years ago and now restored to their former glory.
