Holidays in Penzance

On a sunny day, St. Michael’s Mount, Mount's Bay and Penzance seafront might be mistaken for the Mediterranean. Sitting in the corner of a sheltered and attractive bay, the town has been a popular resort since the Napoleonic wars when the wealthier English people were cut off from the continent and searched closer to home for fresh air and the newly-discovered benefits of sea-bathing. The temperature in Penzance is always a little warmer than elsewhere; sub-tropical plants grow well in Morrab Gardens and in the gardens on St. Michael’s Mount.

Penzance is great for short breaks out of season and there are many boating trips from the harbour that will take you to explore the West Coast from the sea. Due to its excellent road and rail links, holidays in Penzance offer something for everyone; beaches, rock pools, coastal path walking, National Trust and English Heritage sites, restaurants and galleries.

Penzance has secret treats; if you take the time to explore. For a start it’s a good town for walking. The very best way to see Penzance is by the alleys and walkways, the through-lanes from here to there. Take a day to explore the town this way and you will discover its beautiful parks, its Regency and Georgian architecture.  

Did you know...

Penzance has one of the mildest climates in the UK!

Penzance: 'Montpelier' of Cornwall

The oldest part of town is the quayside at Penzance’s Inner Harbour. The Dry Dock, Quay Street, Battery Rocks. The original promenade was built in 1844.

You can walk Penzance Promenade from Battery Rocks to Wherrytown, where there is one of two Penzance skateparks. From Wherrytown, keep to the seafront across Newlyn Green and you are in Newlyn. In all a 30 minute stroll, depending how long Jnr. wants to spend skateboarding. There is also a proper-job boating pool at Wherrytown for sailing those radio-controlled (and sail-driven) boats that just don’t get anywhere in the bath at home.

The arrival of the railway in 1852 made the ‘Montpelier of England’ (John Betjeman 1964 Shell Guide) even more accessible. 

Many interesting boats visit Mounts Bay, from the surreal floating yacht-hotels to mighty ships like the four-masted windjammer, KruzenshternThere is a Sailing Club and The Mounts Bay Lugger Association which, as its name suggests, celebrates the beauty of the Cornish Lugger, a traditional fishing boat.

Penzance has two harbour-side pubs: The Dock Inn and The Dolphin. The Dolphin is reputedly the first place in Britain where tobacco was smoked and the hanging judge, Judge Jefferies, is reputed to have held court here in the 1700s after the Monmouth Rebellion.

Things to do in Penzance

The Jubilee Pool
This beautiful art-deco open-air bathing pool is the UK’s largest seawater lido.  There is also an excellent cafe. The pool opens from the end of May until September.  Even in winter, some hardy year-round swimmers use battery rocks (just north of Jubilee Pool) for their daily dip!

Morrab Garden
A sub-tropical garden with Victorian fountains and a band-stand, which still plays host to concerts in the summer. The Morrab Library sits in the gardens and is an absolute joy.  The photographic archives and collections are wonderful. 

Penlee Park
Full of tress and squirrels, there is a specific dog-free and child-friendly play-park within the park. Penzance Tennis Club abuts the park and Penlee House Art Gallery & Museum (with excellent cafe) sits opposite the Penlee open-air theatre and is home to a large collection of Newlyn School paintings.

Shopping in Penzance
Market Jew Street is the main high street and like all high streets, it is in the process of adapting to new out of town shopping habits. However not all town centres have the beautiful granite terrace and arcade steps, the iron railings; or retain the architecture of previous generations above the modern shop frontages. There are many Georgian and early Victorian facades just above eye-level in Penzance.

Causewayhead leads up from the town centre.  A pedestrianised street, this is Penzance's third main retail street. Half way up is the Savoy cinema, said to be the oldest continually running cinema in the British Isles.

Eating out
Penzance self catering holidays are perfect; Chapel Street leads up from the harbour to the town centre where you will find a range of restaurants and pubs as well as independent shops and houses of historic interest and importance. Lavenders Deli on Alverton Street is perfect for stocking up on treats for your holiday cottage. Check out our blog on places to eat in Marazion for ideas on where to refuel during your self catering holiday in Penzance. Or if you fancy a restaurant with spectacular views, The Bay in Penzance is the place to go. Read more on our blog: Restaurants with the best views in West Cornwall.

This was a very nice, comfortable property in an excellent location near the centre of Penzance. It is bigger than it appears in the photos, and there are good views over the harbour and Mounts Bay from the open-plan living/dining room. It had all the facilities I wanted, including bathtub and walk-in shower, a spacious kitchen with plenty of worktop space, a washer-drier, good broadband, and an excellent smart TV. Everything was very clean and in good condition. I would certainly stay here again.

Excellent flat in perfect location for amenities. Very comfortable .

A beautiful apartment the views were amazing A brilliant location walking distance to shops bars and restaurants Will be booking to go back again

Perfect staycation!

We absolutely loved our stay in Top Flat. The views from the kitchen and lounge were just incredible. We loved watching The Scillonian on her way out in the mornings (wouldn't have wanted to be on it though a couple of the days!!). The flat is spacious yet cosy with a super comfortable bed and a well equipped kitchen. I couldn't recommend this place highly enough! Would definitely return. Thank you Aspects for making it a seamless process from booking to departure.

It was wonderful to have accommodation with such a great view over the harbour. The flat was very tidy and clean with everything we needed. We were fortunate to find free parking just down the road but can imagine it would be a problem at a busier time of the year. Will definitely consider staying here again.

Perfect place to unwind visit the local pubs and use the public transport to roam the area if you tire of the splendid coastal walks to Mousehole or Perranuthnoe. Cozy bolt hole what ever the weather x

Lovely flat with a very well equipped kitchen, in an excellent central location.

This flat is in an excellent location with great views across the harbour towards St Michael's Mount. It's very convenient for those without a car and there are great places to eat in the same road and nearby. Be aware that, although there is an en suite shower, the bathroom (with loo) is up two (short) flights of stairs.

Fabulous flat with lovely views across the harbour and out to the bay. Very clean and comfortable. Great location to explore the local area.

A very comfortable flat with great views and located conveniently for town in Chapel street. I'd recommend Mermaid Alley for food!

This is a lovely flat in an excellent location with great views. It is well-equipped, clean and comfortable. I thoroughly enjoyed my week there and would happily return.

Lovely flat. Highly recommended. Spacious, comfortable and with wonderful views.

Top flat is quiet, clean and comfortable located close to the town centre. It is well equipped including fast WiFi.

Parking outside the flat can be difficult but there is low cost parking a few minuets walk away at the harbour.
