Falmouth Harbour

From Openwaterpedia

Falmouth harbour, together with the Carrick Roads, form the third deepest natural harbour in the world, and the deepest in Western Europe. It is famous for being the starting or finishing point of various round-the-world voyages and is a top destination for UK sailing enthusiasts. In Tudor times Henry VIII fearing invasion ordered two castles to be built to guard the harbour entrance. Pendennis Castle on the west side and St Mawes Castle on the east are 1 mile apart.
