Penzance Travel Guide
The town itself has much to offer, Morrab Gardens
with its sub tropical palms and banana plants is good place to discover the unique
flora of this region. The seafront offers magnificent views over Mounts Bay across to
Mount and Newlyn
and the newly restored seafront Art Deco lido is worth a visit.
Newlyn, 2 miles from Penzance is home to Britain’s 2nd largest fishing fleet,
the harbour wall is open to the public to watch fish being landed, nets being
mended and the general hub hub of a busy port. A further 2 miles on from Newlyn
is the picture postcard village of Mousehole, a must
see for all visitors.
harbour is the home port of the “Scillonian”
the daily ferry taking, supplies, visitors and residents to the Scilly Isles,
the journey in good weather takes about two and a half hours, the Heliport on
Eastern Green has regular helicopter flights, weather permitting, for the 20
minute flight. There are also regular daily flights to the Scilly’s from Lands End airport about 10 miles
away. For somewhere so isolated from the rest of the country Penzance has excellent
direct rail links
with London, Scotland and the North of England.
For a town of its size Penzance has a lively pub
scene to suit all tastes. Many local restaurants
serve fresh Newlyn landed fish and shellfish.
