Film, TV & Literature


Since the age of silent movies, film and TV makers have used Cornwall’s dramatic scenery as a backdrop. From box office favourites to tv programmes like Doc Martin, Delicious, Poldark and only recently the new Game of Thrones prequel, House of the Dragon are all filmed on location in Cornwall. Our German visitors will also recognise locations from the adaptations of Rosamunde Pilcher series which are hugely popular.

Cornwall has and still is the home to many authors, our most famous being Daphne Du Maurier, whose novels Frenchman’s Creek and Rebecca are all set here, as well as Winston Graham who lived in Perranporth.
