The Matthew has once more returned to Falmouth and is offering people the opportunity to sail aboard her on selected day trips during April and May.

The Matthew is a replica of the ship that in 1497 John Cabot sailed to Newfoundland and so discovered North America. Her home base is in Bristol and during the spring and summer she visits several ports around the UK and Northern Europe offering voyages of varying length.

Whilst in Falmouth she can be found moored in the inner harbour close to Events Square when not out at sea on a trip.
