The area and getting around

From Penzance Harbour, why not pop over to the Isles of Scilly? The crossing from Penzance to St. Mary’s take around 2 hours and 45 minutes, giving you a unique perspective of some of Cornwall’s most iconic coastline!
Travellers and activities
Penzance offers some truly world-class dining for the discerning foodie. The Shore in the heart of the town offers a seafood menu which brings the area's daily catch directly to your plate, with fabulous dishes such as lemon sole and scallop risotto. Tolcarne Inn on the seafront just to the south of the town is the project of Ben Tunnifcliffe, a Michelin Star chef. It combines exceptional quality food in a traditional and cosy pub setting, and it well worth the 20 minute walk if you are staying the centre of the town.Penzance for beach bums
Few first-time visitors to this part of the world are prepared for sheer beauty of the beaches that await them. You may be excused for wondering if you have been teleported to the Caribbean! The beach of Porthcurno, a short 20-minute drive from the town, is blessed with sand so soft and sea so turquoise that it could easily be mistaken for the likes of Barbados. Don’t have a car? Longrock is a safe family beach with sand and pebbles, favoured amongst Penzance locals as it is the most easily accessible stretch of sandy beach from town.
