A must go if you are in Cornwall. The roads leading to the theatre are windy but definitely worth the trip. Lovely afternoon tea by the windows at the cafe with stunning views. The fresh scones with jam and clotted cream were delicious.

The work that must have gone in to build this place is astounding. Great views of the sea and cliffs. Would live to watch a performance here
