Poldark’s Cornwall proudly introduce the Poldark Tours – Come with us to see the official Poldark’s Cornwall.
A comprehensive and fully guided tour of all major locations used in current BBC Production of Poldark starring Aidan Turner and Eleanor Tomlinson. Many of the locations used in the original 1970’s series starring Robin Ellis and Angharad Rees and the inspirational places that author Winston Graham used for his Poldark novels.
In this tour we explore the far West of Cornwall, taking in the Film and literary locations for both the current and previous TV series of Poldark, as well as the locations that inspired Winston Graham’s Poldark books.
Departing from Perranporth Beach Car Park (pay & display with space for 250 cars) at 9.30 am.
We begin our day with a drive westwards through the heart of Cornwall’s mining country past Mounts Bay and the spectacular tidal island of St Michael’s Mount and on towards Lands End. Heading off the beaten track we will first visit the pretty fishing inlet of Penberth Cove. This has featured in many scenes from series two and it’s worth spending a while seeing all the little nooks and crannies that you will know so well without even realising it! We will then visit Porthcurno and perhaps take a walk along the coast path to Pedn Vounder where the beach has been frequently used in Poldark as parts of Hendrawna Beach and where Ross had his vision of Demelza and himself whilst awaiting trial.
Optional Coffee stop at the extraordinary Minack Theatre for those who may not have been here before, or otherwise at the Porthgwarra Café.
At Porthgwarra (the NAMPARA Cove of the series) we will see the tunnel where Ross kept his boat, the crystal-clear waters where Demelza watched Ross swim and where the pilchard harvest was taken in. A shortish walk to the rocky outcrop of Gwennap Head showcases where countless scenes have been shot and from here you can see Lands End and take in some breathtaking views.
Lunch stop in St Just
Driving past Botallack Manor which featured in the original Poldark tv adaptation as Ross Poldark’s home Nampara we arrive at the amazing heritage site of Botallack. The mines here feature as Grambler, the perilously sited and ill fated mine belonging to Francis Poldark and Wheal Leisure and Wheal Grace. This place is hallowed ground to Poldark fans and the newly opened Count House coffee shop has a short film about the area and its use in the series. Having walked right down to the twin engine and winding houses of Crowns mines we will stop in here for a well-earned cuppa.
On the return journey we will stop off at Levant mine to see the building used as Tressiders Rolling Mill before returning to Perranporth for an estimated return around 5.30.
We will always try to accommodate your own preferences for places to visit , so don’t hesitate to define where you would like to see along the way or if you wish to give somewhere a miss.
