Description

A private and bespoke trip from London to Cornwall (Return)

Doc Martin and Poldark are filmed on the beautiful north Cornwall coast. It can be difficult to get there if you don't have a vehicle, so let me do all the work for you. A fully personal and private tour at your pace.
You will be picked up direct from your Hotel or accommodation in a comfortable private vehicle by me, (Richard) I'm a huge fan of the shows and passionate about Cornwall. 
Day one will focus on all things Doc Martin and the gorgeous village of Port Isaac which becomes Port Wenn in the show. See all the main locations including The School, The Pub, Mrs Tishell's Pharmacy and of course the Doc's Cottage and Surgery.
Day two it's all about the moody and atmospheric world of Ross Poldark from the hit BBC series Poldark.
The perfect short trip from London to the stunning landscapes of Cornwall.

Doc Martin and Poldark have many fans around the world. Doc Martin is a more light hearted drama with lovable characters and amusing story lines. Poldark is a little more moody and atmospheric. What do they share in common? The answer -  Cornwall
Both of these wonderful TV Shows are shot in Cornwall in the south west of England, and many of the locations are relatively close to each other. This tour is ideal for fans of both shows, as we will divide out time equally between them.

A personalised tour, bespoke to you. No large groups, just you and me!, your personal tour guide and driver. 

Day One - All about the Doc - Cornwall is about 4.5 hours from London, so we will depart early to make the most of our trip. (Other pick up locations are possible if you are not staying in London) We will break up the journey on route to stretch our legs and take refreshment before heading on down through Devon and in to Cornwall. Arriving around lunchtime in Port Isaac (Port Wenn) Perhaps you can tuck in to a traditional Cornish Pasty or the huge Fish & Chips at the Golden Lion Pub (the real life pub that is renamed the Crab & Lobster in the TV series)
Then we can explore the Village - The School where Louisa is Head Teacher, Mrs Tishell's Pharmacy, Characters Homes, Key filming locations and of course the Doc's surgery and Cottage. For those with some energy we will walk to the top of the village and on to the cliffs to get a beautiful view of the village often used in the filming. Once we have toured the Village we can make the short trip on foot or by car to Port Gaverne - Home to PC Penhale and the beach often used for filming scenes and story lines.

Then perhaps it will be time for a traditional Cornish Cream Tea?

I will leave you to enjoy your evening in Port Isaac as you wish, but will be on hand for anything you need.

Day two - It's all about Ross! - After breakfast, I will pick you up from your accommodation and we will drive down to the stunning former mines at either St Agnes head or Botallack. Both are used as locations for Wheal Leisure and Wheal Grace. And many of the panning cliff top shots of the cast walking or on horseback are filmed in these locations. The stunning scenery along this coast also doubles as Nampara Valley.
We will then head to the charming little harbour at Charlestown. This port becomes Truro harbour in the Poldark series. Our last stop will be Bodmin Moor. And the village of St Breward. In the outskirts of the village the film crew use a cottage as Namparra , (Ross and Demelza's home) And also the cottage of Dwight Ennis is located nearby. Many of the fishermans/villagers cottages are filmed in St Breward, as well as other scenes for the show.

We will then commence our journey back to London, (or chosen stop on route Bath, Salisbury, Winchester, Windsor.)
