This is a small group guided tour.  If you wish to book a general visit only, please visit our Theatre and Garden Visit page.

Discover more about the Minack.   Book on one of our special Guided Tours of the theatre.  Places on each tour are limited and you will be provided with a headset. 

Each tour will last about an hour.  Our tours include walking up and down long flights of steps around the theatre.  However, some of them can still be enjoyed by people with limited mobility.  If you have concerns about access or mobility, please contact our box office to check that this tour is suitable for your situation.

You are welcome to remain in the theatre after your tour, to explore on your own and visit the Rowena Cade Exhibition. You do not need to purchase an additional visit ticket!  

Rowena Cade created the Minack Theatre to sit harmoniously within the landscape of Cornwall.  Since the 1990s we have developed the Minack gardens to showcase an extraordinary variety of plants that thrive on the side of a Cornish cliff. Our gardeners think of the Minack as a series of raised beds and are delighted to have this opportunity to share their wealth of experience as Chelsea Gold award winners.

Head Gardener Jeff Rowe or Claire Batten will guide you around the Minack and explain the unique challenges of our cliffside gardens and how they manage the harsh conditions allowing our plants to flourish. There will be tips on coastal gardening and drought tolerant planting and time for questions.
