Pronounced Foy. Fowey is a chic and fashionable town of narrow streets and brightly coloured houses, that overlook the superb natural harbour.
A haven for yachtsmen, a commercial seaport and centre of many inns, restaurants, galleries and shops. One of England’s busiest towns in the Middle Ages, and home of the ‘Fowey Gallants,’ a bunch of reckless and invincible pirates who raided French and Spanish shipping. Still a busy exporter of China Clay. Fishing trips and passenger ferry to Polruan.
Festival of Words & Music - May. Royal Regatta & Carnival week - Aug (2/3 week).
