Poldark Tour Cornwall
You’ll then travel a few miles on to visit Porthcurno and The Minack Theatre. The Minack Theatre provides the best views over Pedn Vounder Beach, used in Poldark Series 1, and down to Porthcurno Beach, featured in Poldark Series 2. The views from here are unrivaled, and it is one of the most iconic photo locations in Cornwall. You will then head on further west to Porthgwarra, the pretty cove used in Poldark Series 1 for the pilchard boat scene, and also from where Demelza spies on Ross, taking his early morning swim. It was also used as the location for Mark’s escape by boat to France in the first series.
There will be a lunch stop at a reputable pub/restaurant in the area. After lunch, you will wind your way on to Botallack. The farmhouse ‘Botallack Manor’ was used in the original 1970s series as Ross Poldarks’ home, ‘Nampara’. The clifftop settings at Botallack, with disused Engine houses and mine buildings set right on the cliff edge, are extremely dramatic and have their own story to tell. Two of the mines here are used as the locations for Wheal Leisure, Wheal Grace, and Wheal Grambler in Poldark.
From here, you will head up the scenic coastal road to St Ives and back up to your starting point, where your driver-guide will return you to your hotel.
