Fowey and Cornwall has achieved international recognition from UNESCO that has credited World Heritage Site status to ten industrial landscape areas which best represent our mining past. Newquay's vibrant identity has evolved from history going back 3000 years and a rich traditional culture much of which still lives and breathes through the sites and scenery found throughout the region today.
What do you fancy doing whilst in Fowey? Maybe a gorgeous garden one day, a gallery or museum the next, or perhaps something a little more active – surf schools, boat trips, cliff top walking, cycling…take your pick.
Or if history and heritage is more your thing you’ll love our historic houses, castles, museums and World Heritage Sites.
And don’t forget our iconic attractions they are not-be-missed!
Discover the special places Fowey is famous for; gorgeous gardens and iconic attractions such as St Michael's Mount, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, Minack Theatre, Land's End, Tintagel Castle and the Eden Project. But Fowey will keep surprising you with the vast offer of new, different and fun things to do, even if you're a regular visitor or a local. The National Trust in Cornwall has more than 25 historic places and gardens.
Nearly a third of Cornwall is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and includes some spectacular coast, the rugged uplands and the tranquil wooded river valleys. The Fowey Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, one of 46 in the UK, is unique in that it consists of 12 separate geographical areas but is one single AONB. These sections include 10 stretches of Cornish coastline as well as the Camel Estuary and Bodmin Moor.
