Welcome to Penzance!

Once upon a time, our beautiful port town was the ‘hidden gem’ of West Cornwall. But, oh, how times have changed. Visit Penzance today and you’ll find a place rightly celebrated as the hottest destination in all of Cornwall.
Our award-winning restaurants and cafes win the hearts of visitors and critics, our pubs and bars buzz with life, and our independent shops and galleries are packed to the brim with quirky, artsy charm.
Soak in the atmosphere of our famous Promenade, tropical gardens and historic streets. And when you’ve worn out your feet, kick back in an airy room overlooking glorious Mount’s Bay. Bliss!
Visit Penzance and you’re also perfectly placed to explore some of the most magnificent countryside in the United Kingdom. Golden beaches, towering clifftops and sheer romance beckons.
Seriously? What are you waiting for?
