Did you know that Newlyn was once a gathering place for artists? In the late 19th Century, painters travelled to the small fishing town to make the most of the natural light, calling themselves the ‘Newlyn School’. So much of the town inspired their work – from the fishing boats to the tragedies at sea.
Today, this heritage continues to attract artists to the area. Immerse yourself in the story with a trail that guides you through the key galleries in Penzance, as well as carefully curated exhibitions at Penlee House.
