Welcome to Fowey

Welcome to the Ancient Town and Port of Fowey which is situated on the south coast of Cornwall, at the mouth of the Fowey river about 20 miles west of Plymouth, and 5 miles east of St Austell.

With a population of around 1800, which swells during the summer months accommodating visitors, Fowey is a busy port exporting china clay all year round and welcoming cruise liners during the tourist season, as well as being a popular yachting harbour. In May the town is the backdrop for the Fowey Festival of Words and Music and in June you are invited to sample the excellent, locally grown mussels during the Fowey River Big Gig & BBQ (formerly the Mussel Fest).  August heralds Fowey Royal Regatta which is always held in the third week of August and our Christmas Market weekend, held at the beginning of December, grows in popularity year on year.

In local government terms, Fowey is a civil parish with a town council and a Mayor. Besides the town, the parish includes the coastal area between the mouth of the River Fowey and St Austell Bay, including Gribben Head and the smaller settlements of Menabilly, Polkerris, Polmear and Newtown.

The parish of Fowey lies within the St Austell and Newquay constituency of the United Kingdom Parliament, and the South West England constituency of the European Parliament.
