Truly one of the most beautiful locations within Cornwall and the UK. Just 4 miles from Lands End, The Minack Theatre is Cornwall's world famous open-air theatre, carved into the granite cliff and set in glorious gardens overlooking the spectacular panorama of Porthcurno Bay high above the Atlantic ocean.
The summer theatre season runs from May to September presenting drama, musicals and opera in this most dramatic of settings. Day visitors can explore this world famous open-air theatre created from a cliffside at Porthcurno by Rowena Cade. The sub-tropical gardens have become an established favourite, especially for gardeners with a taste for the exotic. The succulent plants thrive on the open cliffside providing an added dash of colour to the Minack all year round
Definitely worth a visit, even if there isn't a play on, you can pop along and see this amazing place built by the hand of a lady with a dream many years ago, and it is still going strong. Combine it with a walk on the coast path East or West, but going east is not for those that suffer from heights. If going to watch a play remember something warm to sit on, something waterproof to wear (just in case), and please don't take an umbrella nothing worse than sitting behind someone with a Brolly!
