    We arrived at the hotel on the busiest weekend in june, the reception was un-manned so we collected our key from the bar, there was no explanation of breakfast times or late night entry.
    We found our own way to our room which was dated to say the least, with pealing wallpaper and undesirable furniture we decided to explore penzance and spent as little time as possible here

    Unique Quality: this hotel is perfectly located in the centre of town with parking (bonus)

    Directions: town centre, head for the harbour down chapel street situated on the left

Penzance long stay car parking??

by PookieRabbit

Just wondered if any local can give me a bit of advice (and good news) on the parking situation in Penzance. We are booked to go to the Isles of Scilly for 4 days via the ferry and where going to leave our car in town. I must admit it did say on the booking form to book your car parking in advance which I just tried to do. It would seem though 2 weeks isnt advance enough and you need to book months in advance for the secure parking.. Anyway apart from the 2 secure car parks near the ferry terminal (Penders and Harbour Garages) I just wondered if anyone could recomend anywhere else to dump the car in Penzance for a few nights? Does the train station have a long stay car park and do you have to book?

Have a look at
http://www.penwith.gov.uk/index.cfm?articleid=5263

It does give some info, though best used in conjunction with a map of the town. There are a lot of parking bays by the station and out along the front. I'm just not sure if there is any long-stay. You could see if there is a contact email on the local council site above.

Parking in the back streets of Penzance is much more problematic now. We had problems finding a space to park when we last went to visit friends - and this was out of season (they are now no longer in the area) . i wouldn't risk it .

Travel Tips for Penzance

Newlyn School of Painting

by TheWanderingCamel

The advent of the railway in the nineteenth century made the distant areas far more accessible to everybody. But it was the quality of light and the low cost of living that attracted many artists. In France, they went to Concarneau and to Pont Aven in Brittany, in Britain they camel to Newlyn.

The first of the painters to settle in the town in 1882 was one of the greatest. Walter Langley had already established something of a reputation and his paintings are powerful depictions of the hardships suffered by the local population and particularly by the seafaring community. Although he used other mediums at times, Langley achieved marvellous effects with his unusual use of watercolours. Stanhope Forbes arrived in 1884 and quickly assumed the leadership of the community. by September 1884 'The Cornishman' newspaper noted that there were no less than twenty-seven artists residing in Newlyn.

The community dispersed towards the end of the century, although Stanhope Forbes founded a school in Newlyn for budding artists.

Today painting from the Newlyn School fetch large sums of money, but there are still many in the hands of local families since the painters used them to pay for services. No doubt many of the owners live in complete ignorance of the value of the painting hanging on their wall.

Morrab Gardens

by psychocy

Located close to the promenade, just behind the library, this pleasantly decorated park is tidy and quiet. It is also chock full of cool sub-tropical flowers and plants. There is a bandstand for summer concerts and lots of places to sit and picnic or play frisbee. Definitely worth visiting if you are in the mood for lazing around under a palm tree reading a good book or eating lunch. Close by is Penlee Park, a larger park with tennis courts, flowers, and fountains.
