Charlestown

The beautiful Charlestown harbour was built in the 1700s and is situated on the outskirts of St Austell, on the south coast of Cornwall. The original grade II listed harbour is split into two, separated by a lock gate which allows boats in and out of the two areas. The harbour has become a popular film set, showcasing its beauty in the recent Poldark series, Alice in Wonderland, The Three Musketeers, Doctor Who and Mel Gibson’s Apocalypto, just to name a few. There are pebbly beaches either side where visitors can enjoy the rugged coastal views and paddle, and there are small gift shops, galleries, cafes and pubs close by.
