Mevagissey fishing village

Mevagissey on the western side of St Austell Bay is one of Cornwall’s most beautiful fishing villages with a picturesque harbour. The centre’s narrow alleyways are brimming with craft and gift shops, old inns, great restaurants and art galleries. The unspoilt fishing village is a popular holiday base and day trip, situated just 7 miles from the Eden Project and 1 1/2 miles from the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Family friendly beach bays sit either side of the village including Gorran Haven to the south and Pentewan to the north.

The Mevagissey Aquarium located beside the harbour is home to sea creatures from local waters. There is also a little museum with a range of interesting exhibits relating to the town’s history. Mevagissey World of Model Railways is renowned as one of the South West’s best model shops. Exhibitions include over 30 trains running through a varied town, sea and country landscape. Cornish scenes features strongly including China clay hills and a Cornish tin mine – and see if you can spot the Beast of Bodmin! In late June, enjoy the Mevagissey Feast Week with its quayside stalls, family activities and an evening procession. You can also hop aboard the Mevagissey Ferry to Fowey in the summer season, with the chance to see basking sharks and dolphins on the way.
