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 and 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.
I will collect you at 9am, after you’ve had breakfast. We’ll head to Penberth Cove for a short walk to the captivating cove and slipway.
From here we’ll make our way to Porthcurno, famous for it’s breathtakingly beautiful beach with it’s white sands and sparkling blue water. Just around the corner is The Minack Theatre where we can stop for a coffee and take some photos looking back towards Porthcurno.

Then 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.
