Falmouth's Premier Live Entertainment Venue

Holding 600 standing and 375 seated and hosting a wide range of events spanning live music, stand up comedy, theatre, arts, dance, lectures and exhibitions. From Ed Sheeran to Paul Daniels to weekly tea dances, the Princess Pavilion has been entertaining the local community and beyond for decades.

The main Pavilion building contains an indoor theatre/multi-purpose hall and the programme contains drama, variety and music from most popular musical styles including rock, reggae, folk, blues, indie and a bit of everything in between.

With wonderful views overlooking Falmouth Bay and Gyllyngdune Gardens, The Garden Room Bar & Bistro is open daily for fresh food and drink. With ample space and a children’s play area in the gardens, it’s a perfect place for families to dine.

Gyllyngdune Gardens were completed in 1907 with the official opening conducted from the bandstand situated in the gardens. The Princess Pavilion was added in 1910. Adjacent to the Princess Pavilion complex are the upper Gyllyngdune Gardens, consisting of the verandah, original Edwardian bandstand and greenhouse, which are used for garden fetes and afternoon and evening band concerts.

Victorian gardens with tropical and traditional plants, sub-tropical quarry garden and tunnel, shell grottos, Edwardian bandstand and nearby beaches.

Started in 2010, the Gyllyngdune Gardens restoration project has completed a £2.3 million scheme to refurbish the gardens and part of the Princess Pavilion. Almost £1 million of the money has been awarded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the balance from Cornwall Council and Carrick Leisure.

A shuttle bus stops outside the gardens. Falmouth Docks railway station is half a mile mile walk away. There is free car parking on-site.
