The Terrace is about three quarters of a mile from the town and harbour where there is an excellent and diverse selection of restaurants and an eclectic mixture of individual shops as well as national chains together with quality galleries showcasing local talent. Nearby train stations (Falmouth Town and Penmere Halt) provide a convenient link to the mainline at Truro for Exeter and London, Paddington.

There are five primary schools and one secondary school in the town and highly regarded independent preparatory and senior schools in Truro.
