Gurnard’s Head & Porthmeor (Private Hire)

Gurnard’s Head & Porthmeor

Join us for this 3-4 hour, circular walk between Gurnards Head and Porthmeor, one of the stunning Clifftop Hikes provided by Heritage Adventures, as part of our range of authentic, high-quality, guided tours, exploring West Cornwall’s rich history on foot or by boat.

As you walk along the clifftop from Gurnards Head to Porthmeor Cove and back through ancient fields, learn about this coastline’s fascinating past, stretching back into early prehistory.

With the help of your guide, professional archaeologist Jeanette Ratcliffe, discover a spectacularly-located Iron Age cliff castle, together with the ancient fields, a medieval clifftop chapel, deserted post-medieval settlement, 19th century pilchard cellar, and an engine house and tin stamping mills representing remnants of Cornwall’s mining heritage.
