This is a must if ever in Cornwall. I have been in the summer and the Winter and both times the view is absolutely stunning and amazing. It should be top of your list if in Cornwall… not far from St Ives which is also one of my favourite places.

What a wonderful place with a remarkable history. Rowena Cave was certainly an inspirational woman. I will definitely return to see a production here.

I love this place and go back whenever I can. It is just £4.50 for an adult and the ticket lasts for a year! The exhibition is worth wandering around to understand just what a feat this place is. In the winter sunshine I could have sat there all day just watching the sea over the stage area - absolutely... More
