Option 1

Tour starts at 10am from Gloucester Railway Station.

We first visit “Truro” actually set in Corsham, a little more land locked than the actual Truro! You will see the locations used in the High Street, and you will see the Town Hall, the exterior of which, is used for the Assembly Rooms in Truro, and where we see Ross and Elizabeth dance together after her marriage. We will lunch here (not included) before travelling on to  “Trenwith”, the ancestral seat of the Poldark family – limited opening times as follows:

1st May to 30th September 2018 on Thursdays & Sundays from 2 – 5 pm (Last tours start at 4.00 pm).
Also open on Bank Holidays, Easter Sunday, & Bank Holiday Mondays.

You will return to Gloucester railway station for your onward/homeward journey.

 

Option 2

Tour starts at 10am from Bodmin.

You will visit the crossroads on Bodmin Moor seen in the first episode, where Ross first learns of his father’s death.You will notice that this is nowhere near the sea, although on our TV screens, you see the ocean in the background…the magic of film making! A short comfort break here before carrying on your journey.

You will then visit Lanhydrock House, which was used in the original 1970’sPoldark series as “Trenwith,” We will lunch here (not included), and there will be a little free time to explore the gardens before setting off.  

After lunch we travel further south to St Austell and the small town of Charlestown, which has the main role of Truro in the series. You will recognise the Grade II listed harbour, which still has tall ships moored there and imagine yourself swept away to the 18th Century! We will have a tour of the harbour side and one of the tall ships too! After some free time here to explore, you will be returned to your hotel or to the train station for your onward/homeward journey.                                                                                 

Option 3

Tour starts at 10am from Falmouth.

This option takes you to The Lizard area of Cornwall,  the most southerly point of England. Here you will see the beautiful Gunwalloe Cove where the ship wreck scenes were filmed, and then, after photos, go on to Porthgwarra Cove; it is in this area that Ross takes his morning swim as his maid Demelza spies on him. This is also where Poldark & Dwight take Jim after rescuing him from jail, and where crew filmed the landing of a pilchard catch, once vital to the local economy and Cornish diet. You will have the chance to take refreshments/lunch here (not included).

After lunch you will go on to the locations used for the Tressiders Rolling Mill, and also the Wheal Leisure Mines. They are famed for the atmospheric abandoned tin mines which include Carnyorth, Wheal Cock and Crown Mines. These old engine houses are instantly recognisable, but they are set on a steep path with loose shale, so good footwear is essential for this day. You’ll also see the original 1970’s Poldark homestead, Nampara here. 

You will be returned to St Ives or your hotel after the tour.

PLEASE NOTE:  These tours should only be considered for those with good mobility, as many locations take in cliff side locations, loose shingle and shale areas. Good walking shoes are highly recommended and  light shoes or sandals should not be worn.
