Poldark Set Locations

Winston Graham’s Poldark is synonymous with Cornwall following the airing of the hit BBC TV series in recent years. It has been filmed all over Cornwall, and Meneage Tours can give you a glimpse into its world. We can take you to walk along the famous beach where the night shipwreck scenes took place at Gunwalloe and to explore the cliffs at Botallack where you can see the Wheal Leisure Mine.

Filming locations include the north Cornwall coast at St Agnes Head, which represents the ‘Nampara Valley’, and the Botallack Mine near St Just in Penwith, which is featured as ‘Wheal Leisure’, the mine that Ross Poldark attempts to resurrect. The beach of Church Cove, Gunwalloe on the Lizard Peninsula was used as a location for a shipwreck scene.  The underground scenes were filmed at Poldark Mine in Cornwall. Charlestown near St Austell stood in for the city of Truro. Other film locations include Porthgwarra on the St Aubyn Estates, Porthcothan beach near Newquay, Bodmin Moor, St Breward, the coast between Botallack and Levant, cliffs in the Padstow area, Porthcothan near Newquay, Holywell Bay, Porthcurno, Kynance Cove, Predannack Wollas on The Lizard and Park Head near Porthcothan, all in Cornwall.
