The town itself is set in an Area of Outstanding Beauty and is located on the west side of the Fowey estuary. The harbour is a magnet for sailors and fishermen, and as you wander the narrow streets of the old town the maritime past springs to life.

There are lots of fantastic independent, boutique shops full of unusual gifts, artwork, and books. And for food fans there are lots of cafes, and tea rooms offering fine local produce, including our award winning restaurant.

There are various ways to explore the town and surrounding area, such as a pleasure boat ride from the Town Quay, taking you upriver and out to sea, providing you with the best views of the town.

You can also stroll along the Esplanade passing grand Georgian, Edwardian, and Victorian houses and walk along the South West Coast Path to the medieval St Catherine's Castle which overlooks the harbour. For an in-depth walking tour, try the Hall Walk which also takes you through Polruan and Bodinnick.

Places to visit include the Fowey Museum, which holds a collection recording the town's rich and interesting history. Old photographs, sailing ship models, costumes and Mayoral Regalia are just some of the things you can see. There is also the Literary Centre, which celebrates one of Fowey's most famous residents, Daphne du Maurier, and a small exhibition is set up exploring her life and writing and the influence is has had on Fowey.

The old fashion Fowey Aquarium on the Town Quay is a great place for anyone who doesn't want to test their sea legs, and you can literally get in touch with the local sea creatures at the petting pool.
