Penzance has a little bit of everything making it a perfect place to explore. If you’re of an artistic bent, head to the Penlee House Museum with its beautiful selection of paintings by the Newlyn School of Artists. It has a great cafe and gardens too.
Take a walk along Chapel Street which is full of 18th century houses, ancient pubs and some great little shops.
If swimming or just sunbathing is more your thing, make time to check out the lovely Jubilee Lido, a stunning art deco pool jutting out to sea. There are plenty of beaches nearby too such as Perranuthnoe, Lamorna Cove, Kenneggy Sands and Praa Sands.
The South West Coast Path passes through Penzance so you can head out in either direction for some fantastic views. St. Michael’s Mount is a must – either walk out along the causeway when the tide is out or hop on a boat to get across. If you fancy something a little further afield, sail over to the gorgeous Isles of Scilly by ferry.
