You might expect a port town to offer its fare share of hidden treasures, and Penzance shops do not disappoint. Tucked away in the town’s nooks and crannies, you’ll find purveyors of antiques and collectables offering everything from nautical curios to Art Nouveau tableware – and everything in-between.
Meanwhile, you’ll discover a rich contemporary art and crafts scene. Pick up a modern masterpiece by a Cornish landscape artist or highly giftable homeware and decorative pieces from talented locals.
Add independent clothes shops and some of the most welcoming bookshops – contemporary and second hand – you’ll find in this corner of the British isles and Penzance shopping really is an experience to savour.
