One of our most favorite parts of the UK. Can explore from so many different angles and from a ferry is a must also. My top view is from St Katherines castle just beyond Readymoney beach

This is a beautiful spot with lots to see, pleasant walks, interesting shops in Fowey. Parking is the biggest drawback, and some of the lanes and paths are quite steep. Fowey is a great stopping place if you're visiting the Eden project.

Such beautiful scenery. When the mist rolls in it still looks stunning. An absolute must for those visiting the area.

Booked a 5 seater motor boat for 2 hours and that gave us plenty of time to discover this amazing estuary, and even further up the river. Just a slow chug, no need to rush anywhere, so we had the most relaxing time.

Fowey is in a beautiful location and once you arrive and appreciate the beautiful scenery, it makes the drive along the narrow roads worthwhile. Although it's not a massive place there are some nice little shops and there are a good choice of places to...More
