England's stunning South West
Discover the rugged beauty of Cornwall on this Poldark-inspired break. Visit some of the iconic filming locations from the TV adaptation of Winston Graham's hugely popular novels, and enjoy the spectacular Cornish coast and countryside.
Early this morning we'll journey to Torquay and our hotel. Once here you'll have time to settle in to you room and relax before dinner.
Today we'll visit seaside Perranporth, Winston Graham's former home, St Agnes - the idyllic Cornish village that doubled as Poldark's Nampara Valley family estate in the BBC series - and the National Trust site at Botallack.
From here we'll head into the Lizard Peninsula, past the Wheal Coates copper mine at St Agnes Head - one of Cornwall's most iconic spots - for the chance to dig through Cornish heritage and tradition at Poldark Mine. After a guided tour of the tin mine itself you'll have time to explore the open-air museum and gardens before we continue to Charlestown, whose Grade II listed harbour was yet another filming location from the series.
Today we'll head into the wild expanse of Bodmin Moor. We'll visit Jamaica Inn - smuggler's haunt and subject of Hitchcock's film and Daphne du Maurier's classic novel - explore 300 years of Cornish history at the Smuggler's Museum and see the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that surrounds the lovely village of St Breward.
Leaving the Moor behind, we'll head north to Padstow. Stroll around the stunning harbour, browse the shops in search of gifts and local crafts, and perhaps stop for lunch before we continue to our final Poldark filming location - Porthcothan Beach (one of the sites used as Nampara Cove).
Today we'll say goodbye to our hotel and head home, arriving back at your pick-up point by mid-to-late evening.
Your seats on the main coach will be allocated for you in advance, taking into consideration any special requests wherever possible.

Coach seating arrangements
Your final travel documents, including the exact time and place of departure, will be sent to you approximately 10 days prior to departure, providing all payments have been made. We are unable to give exact departure times before this.
Joining your holiday
Where meals are not included, your Tour Manager will ensure there are suitable stops made for you to purchase and enjoy lunch and/or dinner each day.
The majority of these consist of a double bed and an extra bed that is often only suitable for children. If this is a concern, you may wish to consider booking more than one room for your group.
If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged.
The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.
