With its history, heritage, and beautiful surroundings, plus award-winning independent shops and great places to eat and drink, Corsham is a wonderful place for visitors and tourists to enjoy. Have a look at our Corsham Map to see all Corsham has to offer.
Corsham’s good looks and location have made it a popular location for TV and film productions. Most famously, the High Street starred – as Truro – in BBC One’s remake of Poldark, but episodes of The Suspicions of Mr Whicher and Agatha Raisin have been filmed more recently. Film roles have included the classics The Remains of the Day and Barry Lyndon. The town’s antiques shops, and their owners, regularly appear on Antiques Road Trip and Corsham’s featured in Escape to the Country too.
