The British period drama has mapped out its set locations.
tvplus, where is Poldark being filmed? Is it somewhere on the Cornwall coast? – ELBIE DE JAGER, VIA EMAIL Yes indeed – popular Brit period drama Poldark (2015current) films the majority of its exterior in Cornwall, where the show is set. They have even made an official filming set map for fans (see main image) so that they can work their way around the show’s scenery. The Truro harbour scenes are filmed in the Charlestown harbour and Ross Poldark (Aidan Turner) spends a lot of time galloping across Bodmin Moor, where the exterior scenes of his cottage are shot. The scenes involving Tressiders Rolling Mill were shot at the Levant Mine in West Cornwall for season 2 (the cast and crew are busy filming season 3 as we speak), while underground mining scenes were shot in a museum founded in 1972 that’s now called The Poldark Mine. The Nampara scenes are actually filmed at a variety of locations like Porthgwarra Cove, Porthcothan, St Agnes Head and Kynance Cove. And it seems that filming on location is a hit with Aidan, who says “I had a couple of fans showing up. One girl found me at the side of a cliff – I don’t know how she did this – she flew from Holland that morning and found me on the remotest part of the UK! It was amazing”.
