Exploring the Helford #Part3
Helford Village is situated on the south bank of the river. It may be peaceful today but at one time this village was bustling with a thriving trade in Rum, Tobacco and lace, in fact trade was so good a customs house was built and of course the port was a regular haunt for pirates and smugglers.
Walking around the village it is easy to see how authors and artists have had their imaginations turned on by it’s history, scenery and architecture.
The best way to arrive at the village is via the Helford ferry, this will offer you the chance to take in the wonder of the river. The passenger ferry runs from the Ferryboat Inn at the Helford Passage.
Alternatively you can arrive by car and park in the Helford Village Car-Park. The journey takes around 45 minutes from Falmouth.
