Polperro Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Cornwall...

This characterful resort lies within the so-called Cornish Riviera and has successfully retained the flavour of an old pilchard fishing village.

Its colour-washed cottages and boat-bobbing harbour are reminders of days long gone.

One of the many waterfront cottages contains a smuggling museum while a natural outdoor ‘swimming pool’ is refilled each day at high tide by the inrushing ocean.
