Much favoured by Artists & Photographers alike. It has been the chosen site for many a film. Truly an area of outstanding beauty!
The Village retains almost all of its 17th century architectural charm and is still a working fishing port,
an activity which is believed to have been around, uninterrupted, since the 13th Century.
Polperro achieved great notoriety in the 18th and early 19th centuries due to the enormous amount of smuggling
taking place around the Port, so much so, that King George ordered a "Water Preventative Guard Station"
to be sited in Polperro Harbour, the first in the Kingdom!
Tales abound of the Pilchard Fishermen and sometimes Smugglers of Polperro!
A visit to the Polperro Heritage Museum, situated in the old "Pilchard Factory" will provide much of the history.
