Penzance

Penzance

Penzance is a historic port which looks out onto Mount’s Bay, where just a few metres out you will be able to see St Michael’s Mount. The tidal island with ancient cobbled paths and an impressive castle holds many myths, legends and stories which will invoke interest and inspiration in any visitor. The island can be reached from Godolphin Arms, where you can walk a mere 500 metres or you can get a boat (if the tide is in).

Have some downtime and lounge on one of the fabulous beaches that are nearby. Perranuthnoe, Lamorna Cove, Kenneggev Sands and Praa Sands all offer golden beaches or small pebbled beaches, soothing sea sounds and if the weather is warm enough, the chance to have a dip – or a surf, after all, Cornwall is renowned for excellent surfing opportunities.

Leisurely activities are aplenty in Penzance, from surfing to swimming, to gentle strolls along the footpaths that meander around the cliffs and harbour boat trips. If active activities aren’t up your street, why not wander down the town’s roads and treat yourself to some goodies from the various high street and independent shops? Don’t forget to treat yourself to a Cornish pasty or Cornish cream tea from a local bakery or cafe!

Penzance also offers an interesting art scene, emerge yourself in Cornwall’s artistic side at the Penlee House Museum which contains a collection of paintings by the Newlyn School of Artists, local antiques and interesting artefacts. The Exchange Gallery offers art-lovers a chance to explore local, national and international contemporary pieces.
