Fowey Estuary
Bustling historic Cornwall port looking out across the River Fowey and Estuary towards Polruan and to the sea beyond. Packed with pubs and restaurants, boats and tourists.

Within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Beauty, the small town follows the shape of the coastline towards Fowey St Catherine's Castle. If you're not staying in the town or surrounding area, there's plenty of parking and it's a short walk downhill into Fowey's narrow streets, brighly coloured buildings, wharves and quays.

The Town Quay (a hundred yards or so from Fowey St Fimbarrus Church) is a great place to eat, drink and people watch. You could also spend a day watching all the boats moving up and down the spectacular estuary.

Local attractions
Local attractions include Fowey Museum and Fowey Aquarium, the Daphne du Maurier Literary Centre and St Catherine's Castle.

River cruises and boat trips out to sea are available. Longer trips across St Austell Bay to Mevagissey and The Lost Gardens of Heligan are recommended.

The Eden Project is about five miles as the crow flies and the Cornish Alps beyond that. To the north, visit the National Trust's Lanhydrock House and Gardens.

Day trips
Located in the central section of Cornwall, Fowey's a great base from which to explore the county. To the east, try Looe and then Whitsand Bay. To the east and north east, try Newquay and Padstow. St. Ives is to the south west.
