For visitors arriving by car, there is a Blue Badge parking space immediately outside the entrance to Eastern House. We have a further six blue badge spaces – three on our driveway on Old Cable Lane, and three in the main car park.

PK Porthcurno has wheelchair access through most of the museum. The only exceptions are where the physical structure means that it has not been possible to make the adjustments necessary to allow level access: the Escape Stairs (the alternative route from the back of the bunker back up to ground level) and the Radio Shack.

There are plenty of toilets at the site and baby changing facilities. All our buildings have access for buggies and pushchairs.

Make a day of it

Our museum stands beside one of Britain’s most spectacular beaches and the world-famous Minack open-air theatre, making a visit to Porthcurno the perfect family day out. Walkers can enjoy spectacular views around Porthcurno from the South West Coast Path – from the Minack to Logan Rock – taking in PK Porthcurno on the way.
