Doc Martin Filming Location Tours

When? Throughout January

At just under an hour away from our hotel, it is a bit further than the other events, but is a must do for fans of the ITV show! Enjoy a fully guided hour and a half walking tour around Port Isaac, which acts as the location for the fictional village of Portwenn in the show.

The tour is led by a local who has also starred as an extra, and will recount various anecdotes from filming. See the Doc's house and surgery, Mrs Tishell's pharmacy and much more! With a history dating back to Henry VIII, Port Isaac is steeped in history, which you will learn about on the tour. You will also get the chance to pick up some Doc Martin souvenirs as well!

Bob Fox - An Evening with the War Horse Songman

When? Friday 22nd January

As with the Doc Martin tour, this event is about an hour away from our hotel, but is well worth the travel! Bob Fox played the role of Songman in the record breaking National Theatre's West End production of War Horse.

Currently on a gap year, Bob is performing a number of solo dates, which offer viewers the chance to experience his rich voice and virtuoso guitar style in a more intimate surrounding. Performing all of the songs from War Horse, alongside newly written material used in the BBC Radio production Ballad of the Great War, this is a must see for lovers of the theatre!
