Porthleven, Land’s End & the Minack Theatre

On Friday morning, it started off horribly damp, misty and humid… but that didn’t stop us walking from Penrose, near Helston, through some woods and along the coast to Porthleven – 2 or 3 miles or so. We stopped there for a coffee and then walked back to the car, using a more direct route along a road but very much uphill!

Loe Bar again.

After Porthleven, we headed back to the cottage to have lunch and not long after 1pm the sun started to make an appearance. Soon it was pure sunshine and blue skies again. This was perfect for our plans for the afternoon and evening – Land’s End and the outdoor, cliffside Minack Theatre (as you can imagine, we were hoping it wouldn’t be wet for the performance!).

Land’s End isn’t looking as tacky as the last time I visited – some 6 years ago.
Model village of famous Cornish buildings.
Of course, the landscape is stunning.
Too pretty a location not to have a photo of myself in it!
Queuing for the Minack.
We found ourselves sitting in the ‘Friends’ of Minack bit, due to there being three seats spare.
We had stone seats. Each seat had the name of a play and when it was first performed at the Minack.
Can’t fault the Minack Theatre on its spectacular location and the play, She Stoops to Conquer, was great too.
