Who needs Hollywood?
2019 is going to see Cornwall playing a starring role more than ever. Not only are the much loved Poldark and Doc Martin both returning to the TV screen, but also Hollywood has come calling. First out is "The Boy Who Would Be King" starring Patrick Stewart. This Goonies-style adventure romp updates the story of Excalibur and was partly filmed in Tintagel and on Bodmin Moor. Next to hit the cinemas on 15th March is "Fisherman's Friends", the story of Port Isaac's very own "bouy band" which stars James Purefoy and Daniel Mays and was filmed on location in the village.
The fifth and final series of "Poldark" wrapped recently and will be shown in the UK later this year. Filming has been taking place all over the Duchy and we can take you to many of the locations. Series 9 of Doc Martin will start filming shortly, much to the joy of the millions of fans from around the world.
Last year we had people travel from as far away as Australia to walk in the footsteps of Aiden Turner and Martin Clunes and this year we have already taken a booking from Canada to coincide with filming in Port Isaac!
We have even made it to the screen ourselves, filming a promotional video with our friends at the Cornwall Channel in the stunning surroundings of Charlestown - perhaps we should get some gladrags for next year's BAFTAs!
