Holidays in Penzance

The area and getting around

Make your journey to Penzance an adventure in itself

Penzance is the major tourist and commercial centre of West Cornwall. This coastal town is awash with history, while providing its guests with all modern amenities for a comfortable and memorable holiday. Fairly isolated in the far southwest of the country, the journey to Penzance is part of the adventure. Travel through some of England’s most charming scenery and stop on the way in its quaint villages as you pass through the lush, rolling hills of Devon and Cornwall.

Discover the area by bike and by boat

Penzance is ideal for exploring by bike, and there are many rental spots in town enabling you to take advantage of the quiet lanes and cycle paths. 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 for foodies

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.

Penzance hosts the pagan Celtic festival Golowan in June with bonfires and a highly unusual parade of colourful giants!

Top 5 travel tips in Penzance

1. Step back in time in the village of Chysauster

The ancient village of Chysauster just outside Penzance is a prehistoric settlement occupied 2,000 years ago. Explore the ruined remains of the courtyard dwellings and learn how the locals of hundreds of years back lived!

2. Check out Penzance’s most flamboyant façade!

Even in the far reaches of Cornwall you can find a little taste of Egypt! A visually stunning curiosity and part of the craze for all things Egyptian in the Victorian era. The ground floor is home to Penzance's top natural cosmetics company – a great place for souvenirs!

3. Go wine tasting

Oenophiles take note! There is a vineyard on the outskirts of Penzance. Polgoon makes Cornish ciders and wine which you can taste during a tour around the farm. Despite only being in business for 12 years, the wineyard has won awards for its rosé wine!

4. Take in a show under the night sky

The Minack Theatre near Porthcurno beach is undoubtedly one of the highlights of Penzance. Perched right on the edge of a cliff, it is one of the UK’s most spectacular outdoor theatres, and attracts fantastic touring theatre companies.

5. Explore St. Michaels Mount

No visit to Penzance is complete without walking across the tidal causeway to the mediaeval castle of St. Michaels Mount. 1,000 years old, it is crammed with treasures and legends. Admire the vistas, hear the islanders’ stories and unearth a history that lives on in every step!
