A tour that visits Poldark locations of great beauty at the West end of Cornwall


This tour takes us to the very Western tip of Cornwall and the magical, unique landscapes captured in the Poldark series.

Penberth, a tiny fishing hamlet which still has it's capstan at the top of the cobbled slipway, was used for many scenes in the Poldark series.

We will visit Porthcurno, instantly recognisable as Nampara Cove, with the Minack Theatre just around the corner.

Porthgwarra, where Ross took his infamous swim in the crystal clear water while being watched by Demelza, will also feature.

Travel back in time when you visit the Botallack and Levant mines, also used in the Poldark series.

St Agnes Head, which featured as Poldark land and Nampara Valley also hosts Wheal Coates, another mine in an iconic location.

Itinerary

I'll collect you after breakfast, & we'll head to Penberth Cove for a short walk to this captivating cove.

Then we'll make our way to Porthcurno, famous for it's breathtakingly beautiful beach. Just around the corner is The Minack Theatre where we can stop for a coffee and take some photos looking back towards Porthcurno.

We'll then take the winding road to Porthgwarra, with it's stories of smugglers and pirates. After this, we'll head to the mines of Botallack and Levant, a UNESCO world heritage site and instantly recognisable as the Poldark family's mine, Wheal Leisure.

The Gurnard's Head Inn will be the perfect stop for lunch.

We'll then head past Zennor & towards St Ives, on one of the most breathtaking drives in the UK.

We'll then make our way to the St Agnes Heritage Coast where we'll visit Chapel Porth where many of Ross's horseback scenes were filmed.

We can stop for a cream tea before ending the day at St Agnes Head and Wheal Coates.

I will return you to your accommodation at around 5pm.
