Penlee House is a fine Victorian building constructed in 1865 for the Branwell family. The park surrounding it was opened as a Second World War memorial garden, while the house became a museum.

Today, museum exhibits sit alongside an impressive art collection with works by members of the famous Newlyn School. One of the gallery’s most famous paintings is “The Rain it Raineth Every Day” by Norman Garstin, which depicts waves and rain whipping across walkers on Penzance Promenade

A great place to grab a cup of team and slice of cake at the Orangery Cafe, Penlee House.
