Lots to see and do, good shopping, excellent transportation facilities to take you all over West Cornwall.
Crowded in summer,
In a nutshell
The "real" Cornwall for sure
If you ask today where to find the Pirates of Penzance, you will be directed to the premises of the Penzance and Newlyn Rugby Football Club, aka "The Pirates".
Originally there were two clubs, in Newlyn and in Penzance, but they amalgamated in1945. Relations between the two were not always harmonious; we are told that between 1929 and 1932, fixtures between the two were cancelled by the police in the interest of public order!
They play today in perfect agreement, and the club is known as fielding a pretty good side. They have regular fixtures with such clubs as Cardiff, Guy's Hospital and the Barbarians who usually do a West Country tour, and the Pirates are not horribly outclassed.
The Mennaye Field where they play is tidily situated about half way between the two towns, and they are heartily supported by the whole of West Penwith.
