Travel Tips for Penzance

Penzance's Boating Pool

by psychocy

Penzance sports it's own boating pool in an area of Penzance called WherryTown which is sandwiched between Newlyn and Penzance's town centers. Opened by the local Rotary Club in 1955, the pool is frequently filled with radio control or wind-powered sailboats, and it's pleasant to sit alongside it and watch the ships sail on nice days. This isn't just for kids - model boat owners of all ages set sail in the pond. I was quite tempted to get a little boat myself to run on the water there... hm, maybe next time.

Penzance : end of the line...way to the west

by Spincat

Penzance really is the end of the line: as far as the train takes you: right at the end of a long peninsular, with a strange light and a Tir Na Nog feel.... you set into the mysterious West.

This is a town full of eccentric characters -they've tried everywhere else and have eventually ended up here : like they've worked their way down to the end of a sock!

So there you are on the end of a peninsular, in a strangely lit and shifting landscape, with wild sea on 3 sides.. what is there to do and see?
Neolithic or bronze age standing stones and sacred wells,
Exotic gulf stream gardens,
Zennor's lovely church with its mermaid carving,
Pretty fishing villages like Mousehole,
Galleries like theTate and the Barbara Hepworth sculpture gardenin, both in St Ives,
Little galleries like Dick eh Dog in penzance
A seal sanctuary,
Wonderful beaches, bars, places to eat.

I used to come here a lot : friends lived here who've now moved away. It has been too long since my last trip to build tips. But I have included some useful links below:
