Looking for Poldark?

charlestown

Charlestown, located on the outskirts of St Austell, is famous throughout the world for its collection of ships and traditional appearance, and has long caught the attention of location managers wishing to use it’s traditional Cornish village and port for the setting of many famous films and television series. As you wander along the side of the original Grade II Listed harbour complete with Tall Ships, you can almost imagine that you’ve been cast as an extra or have been transported to the 17th or 18th Century.

The harbour is the home port for a famous collection of old ships which are employed in film projects all over the world – they have brought work and life to the quays and harbour buildings and are a particular draw for visitors.

As with many smaller villages in Cornwall most of it’s income is generated throughout the busy summer months and becomes much quieter and more peaceful out of season.

However, Charlestown is a wonderful and historic village to visit any time of the year with many of it’s small businesses such as the award winning ice cream shop, cafes, restaurants and public houses open all the year round.
