Visited the theatre at the start from a walk up the coastal path towards lands end and was definitely worth a stop. Dog friendly, 5 pound entry gets you access to the small museum taking you through how the theatre was build, a lovely cafe overlooking the sea, and the theatre itself. Very impressive feat of construction especially considering it... More

There is a good exhibition about the history of this place. But the main reason to visit this place is the great view over the ocean. I think that you can't find a better observation point in thr UK.

After living in Cornwall for 3 years we finally got to visit the Minack Theatre. I wish we hadn't waited so long! The staff brilliant, and the views breathtaking. We were lucky enough to get to watch some of the rehearsals of Goodnight Mr Tom and were blown away at the sheer talent at the rehearsals even though they don't... More

This theatre is amazing. It's a wonderfull place in a very scenic location. It looks like it's been transported from Greece! To truly enjoy this place be sure to watch the short film about it's creation. Small but excellent value.

Went to Porthcurno to visit the beach and possibly go to look at the minack theatre. It is really stunning and the views are amazing. The problem comes with the cost 2 adults and 1 child came to £12.50 and you could see the lot in 25-30 minutes may be different if there is a show on but when nothing... More

The location of the Minack Theatre is stunning. It overlooks the sea and, if you didn't know you were in Cornwall, you could be in Ancient Greece! I remember years ago my old school went here to watch a play. I've never liked plays so I was looking around whilst I was sitting down on the grass banks and I... More

Such a beautiful place to have a theatre, especially on a hot summers day. The view is absolutely breathtaking. I'm local & I still love going there, I would recommend this place to anyone & everyone. If you're in cornwall on holiday, this is a number one place to visit
