The Cornish harbour made famous in a string of Hollywood movies is put up for sale.

Alice in Wonderland, Treasure Island and Doctor Who have all been filmed at Charlestown.

For four and a half million pounds the eighteenth century port comes with beaches, restaurant and two tall ships.

Owner Robin Davies is preparing to retire and said: "You have to love ships like you love a woman. You have to be involved in it in all directions to put everything into it and it's not all together to do with making a salary or large chunks of money."
