Cornwall as Seen on Screen

From the Blog

It's no surprise that Cornwall is a popular filming location for TV series' and films. Cornwall's varied landscape of wild moorland and dramatic coastline offers a fantastic backdrop for programmes and movies.

Many Cornish mansion houses and their grounds provide the setting for famous films and programmes. Tim Burton's 'Alice in Wonderland' was partly filmed at 18th-century mansion Anthony House and 'Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children' (also Tim Burton) was filmed on Bodmin Moor and at Caerhays Castle.

Nigel Cole's film 'Saving Grace' was filmed in several locations across North Cornwall including Port Isaac, Boscastle, St Endellion, St Tudy and Trebarwith Strand. 

The brand new adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s novel ‘My Cousin Rachel’ also features many Cornish destinations. You can find out more about 'My Cousin Rachel' and 'Daphne Du Maurier' here.

ITV's comedy 'Doc Martin' is filmed in Port Isacc, providing the setting for the fictional village of Port Wenn. Finally, BBC One's 'Poldark' shows off Cornwall with scenes in Holywell Bay, Charlestown, St Agnes Head and Botallack, to name a few.
