Staying in Flushing for a week and we used the flushing ferry almost daily. Lovely skippers on board and very welcoming and friendly. It's definitely worth the £3 fare each way and is such a great way to get to Falmouth.

The flushing ferry is like taking a water bus. It connects Flushing with Falmouth in just a few minutes. It's a regular service with a very friendly lady skipper.

Great service every 1/2 hour in the spring / summer! Every hour in the winter! Somebody's complaining about the £3 charge!! Try walking it or get a taxi then you'll appreciate!

A small boat plying the crossing that has been in existence for ages. Very pleasant crew (of one) but with only a 5 minute trip and a cost of £3.00 per person each way, it is not a cheap method of crossing to Falmouth.

If you are visiting Falmouth and are looking for somewhere close at hand, then don't miss out on Flushing. This ferry makes it just over ten minutes away and provides a pretty crossing. It's not a big or luxurious boat, but is comfortable safe and...More

Flushing is now a select quiet backwater, but was once a busy little village, not very popular then on account of the difficulty of access. Private cars changed that and now jam the little main street in the village. The ferry crossing only takes a...More
