It’s not just the cameras that love Cornwall, the Poldark cast have fallen head over heels for it too…
“It was simply stunning, we filmed at so many gorgeous locations. People know Poldark so well in Cornwall and are proud of it so we were welcomed all the time. It reminded me of home in Ireland, and it was great to be able to film there so much.” – Aidan Turner (Ross Poldark)
“I love Cornwall; it’s glorious and so much the heart of this show. Sometimes you forget the part it plays until you get there and suddenly everything makes sense. It’s just so lovely to see what it’s all about, to see the mines and the history of this story. I enjoyed exploring all the different coves and beaches and the endless beautiful blue water. It is such a peaceful and relaxing place.” – Eleanor Tomlinson (Demelza Poldark)
“Cornwall is completely different to anywhere else. I love Botallack mines – it’s one of the most beautiful locations I’ve ever been on and probably ever will. There hasn’t been a set in Cornwall that I haven’t been blown away by – not literally thank goodness!” – Heida Reed (Elizabeth Poldark)
“Cornwall is another character in the show and it is such a beautiful area of the country. It was easy for us to forget we were still in England as it almost has its own microclimate and when the weather is good you could be on the Mediterranean – it’s pretty extraordinary.” – Kyle Soller (Francis Poldark)
“While filming in Cornwall I went swimming in the sea every day and if I ever had a day off I would go for massive walks along the cliffs in Treglos, or to St Michael’s Mount in Penzance.” – Ruby Bentall (Verity Poldark)
Thanks guys, Cornwall loves you too!
