Welcome to the portside town where a gallery or ground-breaking exhibition is around every corner. Since the Victorian era, Penzance has seen its landscape immortalised in iconic paintings such as Norman Garstin’s ‘The Rain it Raineth Every Day’. (It doesn’t, by the way!) Now in the 21st century, we are a hub for traditional and modern arts in destinations such as Penlee House Gallery and Museum, The Exchange, Cornwall Contemporary, The Lighthouse Gallery and not-for-profit Redwing Gallery. Everyone from Grayson Perry to Jim Moir (Vic Reeves) rocks up in PZ to soak up the arty vibe and exhibit. Just step into one gallery after another – and browse. Find out more about this vibrant scene on our Penzance Art Galleries and Museums page.
