A bit about Fowey
Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, the town hangs off the west side of the Fowey estuary. As you walk the ever narrowing streets of the old town where medieval and Georgian buildings cast shadows over each other, a vibrant maritime history comes to life. If you’re a foodie then Fowey is home to many bistros, cafes and restaurants where you’ll find menus offering the best in local produce.
