Fowey, on the south Cornwall coast, is well known for it's sailing connections. Initially is was a naval town, thanks to it's naturally deep harbour, and these days Fowey may still welcome as many as 3000 boats every year. Pronounced as 'Foy', it has been the inspiration for a number of popular authors, including Q; Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch, Daphne du Maurier and Kenneth Grahame. The Daphne Du Maurier Festival is still held in the town every year, although now goes under the guise of the Fowey Festival of Words & music. List of attractions & beaches below.


Popular legend has it that Jesus visited Fowey as a child!
