Come and visit our gallery in the stunning Cornish harbour town of Mevagissey.
Located on the site of the old Lloyds bank, this new gallery will feature our usual array of beautiful cards, gorgeous wrap, desirable gifts and fabulous art.
Named after two Irish saints, St Meva and St Issey, Mevagissey is an attractive old town.
that was once the centre of Cornwall’s pilchard fishery and has a tradition of boat building dating back to 1745. Narrow streets and steep valley sides lead down to the centre of the old Mevagissey where the distinctive twin harbour provides a safe haven for the many fishing boats that land their daily catch of skate, lobster, plaice and sole. Many of the old buildings, constructed of cob and slate, bear testimony to a time when the large shoals of pilchards were the livelihood of the whole village.
The coastal footpath offers some lovely walks and is also a convenient centre for those wanting to visit such local attractions as the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Many of the local beaches have interesting rock formations and are popular with fossil hunters.
At the end of June each year, Mevagissey celebrates Feast Week with local entertainments and dancing in the streets. In addition, the town has a wonderful display of Christmas lights.
