Cornwall is wild and beautiful. It has captured the imagination of writers, artists and film makers for years; Rosemaunde Pilcher, Ross Poldark and Doc Martin are synonymous with Cornwall.
Both the BBC’s production of Poldark and many productions of Rosemnde Pilcher films continue to use Cornwall as the backdrop for drama. St Agnes, Mithian and much of the Cornish peninsula appear in film, but why wait to see it on screen when you can see the locations in person?
Our cultural courses are designed to showcase the best of Cornwall, not only the locations of the aforementioned, but also lost beaches, theatres on clifftops, the hidden Cornish ports of Mousehole and Port Isaac, the astonishing artist’s mecca of St Ives, the daunting St Michaels Mount, and the breathtaking Atlantic coast.
English and art and culture:
This course is perfect for more mature students who wish to experience all of the fascinating and beautiful things that Cornwall has to offer, combining cultural visits with relevant English classes. We explore the art galleries of St Ives, The incredible Minack Theatre nestled impossibly on cliffs, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, The Barbara Hepworth museum, and the beautiful Lanhydrock House. Cornwall is surrounded by the sea, and the sea defines the landscape. We enjoy stunning coastal walks, and the best restaurants and pubs that Cornwall has to offer.
