Tour Details

Charlestown

We start the day in Charlestown with it’s evocative Georgian Port. This tiny harbour has been used in many films and tv programs including of course Poldark where it was the setting for Truro docks. We can have a look around a square rigger sailing ship docked in the harbour.

Gunwalloe

From here we journey southwestwards until we reach Gunwalloe. There are two beaches to explore here, Dollar Cove was the location of the wreck of the Spanish Ship, San Salvador, lost in 1669 and laden with silver dollars. We may be lucky and find one washed up!

Next up is Church Cove with it’s unique church of St Winwaloe, also known as The Church of Storms. The beach here was used in Poldark where the dramatic night time shipwreck took place.

Mullion Cove

Making our way down through the Lizard peninsula we reach Mullion Cove, with it’s small picturesque harbour. The cast and crew stayed in the Mullion Cove Hotel which overlooks the harbour.

Kynance Cove

This has to be one of the most stunning beaches in the UK, with it’s white sand, dark cliffs and turquoise water it’s no wonder the makers of Poldark decided to use Kynance as Nampara Cove.

Lizard Point

As we’ve travelled this far down the Lizard we really ought to visit Lizard Point, the most southerly point on the British mainland. Great views and photo opportunities abound.

We can stop for lunch half way through the day at a venue to suit your taste and budget. You may wish to save your appetite for the finest shop bought pasties in Cornwall at Ann’s Pasties on The Lizard.
