The Metropole, PadstowThe Metropole Hotel (known as 'The Met') is a landmark hotel in Padstow, perched on a hill, overlooking the town, harbour and the Camel Estuary. Its 58 comfortable and individually-appointed bedrooms, excellent food (featuring the best local seafood) and fabulous views, make it an ideal base for film crews.
One of Cornwall’s most famous harbour towns, Padstow is probably best known for its wonderful seafood. Together with a number of wonderful shops to explore, it is also home to the National Lobster Hatchery, which provides visitors a fascinating insight into the hard work required to keep up a sustainable lobster population in Cornwall. Padstow has an interesting history and there is a museum in the town that will reveal all about the local traditions and customs, including ‘Obby ‘Oss Day on 1st May.
There are 7 fantastic beaches close by, with golden sands, soaring cliffs and superb surf, and the Camel Trail is popular with cyclists. There is also is a local award-winning vineyard, several heritage sites and wonderful wildlife.
The whole north coast of Cornwall provides a dramatic landscape for filming and is used regularly for films and TV programmes – and is easily accessible from The Metropole.
