Doc Martin Tour

1. Doc Martin Tour

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.

Excellent tour. Dave was full of facts and funny stories. Loved every minute of it . Was great to see where the great Doc Martin is filmed and such a huge bonus that they were filming there the day we went. My husband had to drag me away but not before I got a few photos with the cast members who were so lovely .

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 hills of Port Isaac are steep but worth the effort, Mike our host on the tour is a background artist in many of the Doc Martin episodes, he is very knowledgeable, friendly and affable. The tour is definitely great value.

Very enjoyable tour Great tour guide named Dave Very nice man , and interesting man Would highly recommend

Lovely day out, learnt lots of knowledge about the local area
