Viking weekend in Falmouth

Take the train to Falmouth this weekend for the National Maritime Museum’s Supersized Viking Weekend.

There’s lots to see and do throughout each day, including meeting real Vikings, a Beowulf puppet show, Nordic winter crafts, and a Christmas-themed Viking bear hunt. See the full event preview to find out what’s happening when.

It all takes place at the National Maritime Museum, 5min walk from Falmouth Town station (see map).
