We really enjoyed our visit. It's a great place to visit, very interesting to see the history of it too. We'd love to go back and see a production there.

We visited this on a cold grey morning in late December and absolutely loved it. Amazing theatre, you have to visit. We will return to watch a play when the season opens.

The Minack theatre and Rowena Cade's vision are pretty amazing and the museums very informative. Great to visit even on an overcast January day and the cafe has a lovely spread, including a rather delightful pasty.

It's amazing what a women can do when she outs her mind to it! Such an incredible sight to see. We will be coming back in the summer season to watch a play. The homemade soup in the cafe is lovely.

One of the most beautiful sites in Cornwall! Entry fee of 5 pounds was well worth it. The cream tea at the cafe was excellent and of course, the view!!!
