FOCUS ON: FOWEY
The picturesque harbour town of Fowey lies at the mouth of the River Fowey on the south coast of Cornwall, and the settlement can be traced back for over 1,000 years.
The town’s narrow streets are filled with dozens of independent shops, from the quirky and arty to stylish and practical, as well as plenty of cafés and restaurants. Whether you’re after a coffee or ice cream, fish and chips or fine dining, there’s something for everyone.
Who can resist Fowey’s tiny aquarium, a boat trip across the river to Bodinnick and Polruan, or further along the coast to Mevagissey, or a stroll down to Readymoney Cove and St Catherine’s Castle? Daphne du Maurier famously lived nearby, and the town’s arts and literature festival is held annually in her honour.
I took a wander through the town and found some delights.
