For a lasting memento of your stay, browse the art galleries and studios hidden amongst its network of shopping streets or treat yourself to a souvenir from a local maker. If one thing links the shops in Fowey, it’s an affinity with the sea, from little boat-shaped planters sold at Boatyard Bloomers, to beautiful marine-themed homeware, clothing and jewellery from The Webb Street Company.

Poldark secrets

Returning to our screens in 2015 and becoming everyone’s favourite Cornishman, Poldark, the TV adaptation of Winston Graham’s celebrated novels, has put the spotlight on some of Cornwall’s most romantic scenery.

Rugged Bodmin Moor, secluded Porthgwarra Cove and the instantly recognisable engine houses of St Agnes Head are just some of the locations where you can almost feel the presence of Aidan Turner and the rest of the crew, transporting viewers back to a time when life was difficult but oh, so romantic! Beautiful on screen and breath-taking in real-life, the sights on the Poldark trail can’t fail to inspire and move you.
