The iconic Penzance promenade stretches the seafront between The Jubilee Pool and Newlyn and is an idyllic place to stroll, roller skate, jog or just sit and people watch. Dating back to the 1800’s the Promenade gives breath taking views of Mounts Bay and Newlyn, day or night there is something magical about.

There are occasions when it rains in Cornwall and Irish painter Norman Garstin captured such a day in his painting “The Rain it Raineth Every Day” which was to become an iconic painting of Penzance in 1889 – capturing the grandeur, splendour and light of the Victorian Promenade, come rain or shine. That very same painting now resides in Penlee Gallery a few 100 metres from its Promenade inspiration.
