What is is about Penzance that attracts us all to live here? Well having lived here for 35 years - what can I say other than the scenery is simply stunning from one coast to another, and the friendly, welcoming people are a pleasure to be around.
From the bustling fishing village of Newlyn to the majestic presence of St Michaels Mount you will have a wealth of places to visit and things to see in your new Cornish home.
Explore the beaches, with Porthcurno approximately 10 minutes from Penzance with its golden sand and green water - quite literally it's like being abroad.
The famous Humphry Davy statue is positioned at the top of the main Market Jew Street, filled with shops, restaurants, bars and all the amenities. At the bottom of town by the harbour is the bus and train station. Constant work on ships and boats goes on in Penzance harbour where Ross Bridge is raised for larger vessels. The 'Scilonian' will ferry you to the Isle of Scilly
for trips to the stunning and varied islands, or you could fly from Lands End airport only 20 minutes away.
Take a stroll along Penzance Promenade and take in the view of the bay, looking across to the Lizard and Mousehole. Just a short car drive of around 15 minutes and you will be on the North Coast - St Just, Lelant, around to Gwithian, Hayle, St Ives all have amazing views. The National Trust keeps up the coastal paths so walkers will be in their element.
Steeped in history, the buildings are like the inhabitants full of life and character.
A true Cornishman will have lots of tales to tell you, that were passed down from generations about the area and how life was.
