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 have EXCLUSIVE ACCESS to some key filming locations of the current TV series including the private farm used as NAMPARA.
Departing from Perranporth Beach Car Park (pay & display with space for 250 cars) at 9.30 am.
We travel first to Bodmin Jail which is fast becoming the premier “must see” for visitors to Poldark’s Cornwall. The site of the jail in which Ross spent the night before his trial is within the grounds and the tour around the inside of the jail is a chilling reminder of the injustices of many a trial in the history of Cornwall.
We will stop for coffee here before taking a scenic cross country trip northwards to Bodmin Moor.
We have EXCLUSIVE permission to accompany you to Nampara, stand where Ross and Dwight share a glass of canary to toast Julia’s christening.
Look out from the doorway of Nampara over Ross and Demelza’s garden and walk the farmyard where Demelza was washed under the pump to rid her of “crawlers”! And where Ross admired her whilst eating an apple.
See some of the actual livestock that starred alongside Aidan and Eleanor!
Nearby you can see the original cottage that Dr Enys resided in and was frequently visited by the ill-fated Keren Daniels. All set with the imposing granite backdrop of Bodmin Moor’s Roughtor and its highest peak curiously named: Brown Willy.
Lunch stop at Blisland Inn
After lunch we will visit the largest of the National Trust properties in Cornwall; Lanhydrock. This grand property was the setting for Sir Francis Basset’s “Tehidy” in the original tv adaptation and it was also used in Twelfth Night starring Helena Bonham Carter. National Trust members can enter the house and the gardens as well as the park. Guests who wish to visit the house may do so at an additional charge or you may prefer to walk the woods or take a well-earned rest in the main café near to the car park.
We will all meet at the café, then back 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.
