One of Cornwall’s most iconic places, and a location in BBC’s Poldark. The famous Crowns engine houses of Botallack Mine cling dramatically to the foot of the cliffs.  There are light refreshments in the old count house, with information and displays on the history of the Tin Coast and Poldark. See Poldark film locations here

There are some fascinating coastal walks that let you explore this area of the Tin Coast.

Botallack is owned and looked after by the National Trust and is able to care and conserve areas like this thanks to their members, volunteers and donors.

Location managers couldn’t resist the rich mining heritage of the stretch of west Cornwall coast linking Botallack and Levant. Levant Mine plays the role of the fictional Tressiders Rolling Mill while Owles and Crowns near Botallack stared as Wheal Leisure.
