Is This Greece? Nope, It’s Penzance, Cornwall, England!
Famous for its pirates, Penzance is a historic port on the South facing shores of Mount’s Bay with lovely climate (most of the time anyway).
Penzance Harbour: the maritime heritage of Penzance is centred on its harbour which has, for hundreds of years, provided the livelihood of the town.
St. Michael’s Mount: a lovely tidal island in Mount’s Bay. It houses a historic castle, garden, & island community found off the coast of Marazion.
You can also stay in one of the many hotels dotting the coast, overlooking the beautiful Mount directly.
Jubilee Pool: a seawater pool in notable Art Deco architecture from 1935. It gives the open air lido right on the beach an exotic feel.
Fish & Chips: and of course, is any trip to the coast complete without a generous helping of fish & chips? Of course not! Lewis’s is a great choice.
Trengwainton Garden: a country house and garden situated in Madron. It’s been in the ownership of the National Trust since 1961, for its exotic trees.
Mousehole: perhaps my favourite, Mousehole is a village popular for retaining its original character, charm and beauty. It is Penzance’s civil parish.
Last but not the least, Minack Theatre! A unique open air theatre perched on the cliffs high above the Atlantic Ocean. Enjoy theatre & salty air here!
