Fowey is an ancient harbour town built on a hill, as a result the roads in Fowey are narrow and steep with many steps and little in the way of pavements.

Although Fowey offers plenty of parking it is limited in the centre of the town and you are advised to make use of one of the car parks around the town.

Main Car Park, Hanson Drive, Fowey. PL23 1ET – suitable for cars and coaches. 269 spaces. Situated on a hill above the town about a five minute walk down to the town – a little longer up!

Caffa Mill Car Park, Passage Lane, Fowey PL23 1DF, number of spaces TBC. Close to town and provides a mostly flat walk. About a 8-10 minute walk.

Fowey Leisure Centre, PL23 1HE, provides a great overflow pay and display carpark at the top of the town. Over 40 spaces
