Full description
If you’re a fan of the TV show Doc Martin, this fully guided walking tour will take you around the fictional Cornish seaside village of Portwenn. In reality, it is filmed on location in Port Isaac, a small and picturesque fishing village on the Atlantic coast of north Cornwall. Now in its seventh series and popular with fans around the world, this Doc Martin tour is the best way to see the main locations from the show which first aired in 2004. The walking tour is led by a local who has been involved in the filming of Doc Martin itself as an extra and shares many anecdotes about the filming of this show.  Locations from the show that you will see include the Doc’s house and surgery, Louisa’s school, Mrs Tishell’s pharmacy and much more. However, the village itself has a long and fascinating history dating back to King Henry VIII and your guide will show you hidden village paths, historical buildings, beautiful views and give you an insight into local life. There will be plenty of photo opportunities along the way.

This was an excellent mix of Doc Martin stories and local history. Our guide is part of the “extras” cast on the show so we got super insider information! It lasts an hour and a half, has some steep steps but the pace was slow so even a 85 year old man on our tour managed ok.

The reason I gave it 4 stars, was purely the cost through GYG. If you go direct it is £3.50 cheaper. The guide was brilliant, he has been in some episodes of Doc Martin, and he was able to answer all questions put to him. He is a local, and lives in Port Isaac. Highly recommended tour. Book direct.

Well worth the time, effort and money, a must

Port Isaac is stunning and yes you can experience the Village by yourself but this tour offers so much more, we were taken around by someone who’s not only a local but an actor who’s been in Doc Martin, his knowledge is excellent, and explains not only the locations used, which characters lived or work where but also the history of the village through the ages, there are so many extra hidden secrets that on your own you would definitely miss. Thanks so much was excellent
