Originally a tiny fishing port of West Polmear it is now a thriving village welcoming thousands of visitors every year. The harbour and surroundings feature many beautiful Georgian period properties along with traditional stone fishermen’s cottages and inns.
Many scenes from Poldark were filmed here, and the village has provided the background for many other TV series and films, including Hornblower, Mansfield Park, Alice in Wonderland and even Doctor Who.
When visiting you cannot miss the fleet of square rigger tall ships in the harbour.
