Secret Gardens

Explore the beautiful gardens in Fowey during Friday 19 and 20 May 2023

Fowey is packed with pretty little side streets and alleyways where you will find Secret Gardens open to the public on Friday 19 and Saturday 20 May, during the festival week.

Discover some of Fowey and Polruan’s hidden gems; from gardens with spectacular views to secluded havens, walled gardens, hidden terraces and much more. Follow the trail to uncover a glorious mix of vibrant gardens with a diverse variety of planting. Some gardens provide refreshments.

All donations, as well as all proceeds from tea, coffee, cakes and prosecco sales go to the Festival of Arts and Literature.

Maps are also available in shops and cafes around the town. Due to the steep nature of Fowey, some gardens may have difficult access. Neither the Festival nor the garden owner can accept any liability in the unlikely event of an accident.
