Fowey: "The steep, narrow streets lined with jostling cottages, shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants are great fun to explore, though you may find yourself flattened against a wall each time a car attempts to squeeze past. Tantalising views of the glittering estuary are glimpsed through tiny passages, like windows onto the busy river." www.bradtguides.com
