Fowey Town Bus

Fowey Town Bus.  Primarily used by visitors to return from the stop in front of the church to the main car park and "most other locations on request".  Our guests have used the Fowey Town Bus to return from Fowey.  Please note, some drivers may not drop you at the CL... it all depends on how busy they are.  Double check with the driver before boarding.  Furthermore, the Fowey Town Bus will not pick you up from Fowey CL as we are not on their standard route - you would have to walk to Rawlings Lane ( by which time you may as well continue the short distance into town on foot!). The Summer service runs between 10:00 and 18:00 (13:00 to 17:00 Sundays) from Easter to the end of October.  Bus passes are not accepted on this service. Phone: 01726 833616
