Location Crew

Port Isaac via Visit Cornwall

One of the stars of the new Poldark drama will, without a doubt, be the wonderful Cornish scenery and many of us will be keen to go there and see it for ourselves. The original series attracted plenty visitors to Cornwall but, with the recent growth in television tourism, Cornwall can surely expect an even greater influx of fans this time around.

One of the people responsible for finding suitable locations for shooting Poldark it would seem, is location manager and Cornwall expert Carn Burton. Carn has lots of experience of filming in Cornwall with films like About Time, Summer in February and Gulliver's Travels to his credit. Other credits include Skyfall, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Strange Tides, Rush and War Horse: all pretty impressive. The assistant location manager, Monty Till,  is also familiar with Bristol and the South West having worked on Doc Martin and Summer in February.

Pictured here are Port Isaac and Porthluney Cove which were locations used for filming in the original Poldark series. Pictures via Visit Cornwall.

  1. Looks a great place to visit. I live not to far away from Rockingham Castle and lucky to be surrounded by lovely places to visit. I hope the weather is good when you start to film. Best of luck. Alice
