A full day exploring the far west of Cornwall and lots of locations made famous by the popular BBC adaptation of Winston Grahams novels 'Poldark'. We start at the tiny fishing cove of Penberth, then on to Porthcurno where we will take in the amazing views from the world famous Minack theatre. After a visit to the theatre we then head on a few miles to Portgwarra, a picturesque fishing hamlet that is instantly recognisable as the location for Ross Poldarks skinny dip in the sea, and also the scene where the pilchard boats come home.. After soaking up the atmosphere we head on the west Cornwall coast and through the quaint unspoiled mining town of St Just whose history is so typical of the whole area, rich in mining, farming and fishing from days gone by. As we continue further on from St Just we will stop and visit the iconic mines of Botallack. Botallack is used as the location for Wheal Leisure and Wheal Grambler in the series. From here will wind our way up the coast on what is reputed to be one of the most beautiful coastal drives in the country. We will pass through St Ives, with its stunning white sand beaches and painted fishermens cottages. From St Ives we will then head back to your accommodation. Lunch will be taken at a reputable restaurant or pub and we will stop for a traditional Cornish cream tea if time permits.
The price includes all driver/guide and motoring costs, but excludes lunch/cream tea and refreshments and entry fees to the Minack Theatre.
