parking in Fowey

Hello,

Can anyone please provide details about the "free" car park at the top of the town? Whereabouts is this car park and will it still be free in March? How far is it to walk into Fowey? Failing that, any suggestions about overnight parking?

Many thanks.

The free car park is off to the left as you approach the top of Fowey(Polvillian Rd). It is a left turn just before the roundabout which is close to the main school(visible on the right).It is also the road leading to Fowey hospital. The car park is a rough surfaced area on the right just after you turn as directed above.It is free all year. It will take about 15-20 mins to walk down to the town and a bit more on the way back as its all up hill!

As you're coming in March, you've also got the advantage of being able to park on a few of the double yellow lines as some of these only have a Summer Restriction. Just watch the signs carefully and see if they have 'all year round' or not.

Thanks for the advice and tips. Do you know if there's still a minibus service to and from this car park?

Hmmm, not sure if it will be running in March.

Don't worry about carrying luggage as there will be places to park in the town to drop off/pick up etc.

Why not speak to your accomadation people and see what they say about parking, they may sort something out for you as its low season and not many people around.

The free minibus does not run from the "free car park" this is an area of rough ground used by locals for the park, bowling green and recycling bins.It can be full quite often so be aware of that. The free bus you mention runs from the main car park just on the right as you turn into Hanson Drive (definitely not free). The bus runs most days in March but I cannot be more specific, a phone call to the tourist info centre will give accurate information.
