Sweeping coastal landscapes provide the backdrop for the gripping BBC drama…
Poldark fans rejoiced when the BBC announced that the show would be renewed for a fourth series, airing this summer – and with filming wrapped up, the final countdown is on.
The gripping drama will be back on our screens in June, with Aidan Turner reprising his role as Ross Poldark, alongside Eleanor Tomlinson as wife Demelza.
Set in the 18th century, the show sees Ross returning home from the American War of Independence, only to find that a lot has changed in the three years he was away from the Cornish coast.
But he never loses his sense of adventure and made some risky forays to France last series too.
It’s not just scything heartthrob Aidan and the thrilling plot lines that have kept viewers glued to the screen – filmed in Cornwall, the show notoriously boasts some seriously breathtaking backdrops.
We take a look at some of the prettiest filming locations used for the BBC show – and how you can have your own Poldark-themed minibreak there without breaking the bank…
