Absolutely fantastic. Well worth the journey. The site is well organised by helpful staff. If you have difficulty walking, choose to sit in the upper part of the theatre. The site is very steep!

What an incredible place, a theatre cut out of the cliff with incredible views over the beach and the sea. The most amazing place to see a production or just visit to see the place!

If I buy a ticket for a performance can I also look round the theatre & gardens or would I have to buy another ticket?

Is there a lot of public transport that runs from the theatre? We are staying in Mousehole and trying to walk as much as possible but have read that this would probably be too much of a walk.
