Welcome to Penzance: the gateway to West Cornwall

Sunny, south-facing Penzance lies on the shores of Mount’s Bay in the far west of Cornwall. It is the main town of the district of Penwith and is the gateway to the spectacular Land’s End Peninsula, one of Europe’s finest holiday destinations. With its palm trees and public gardens full of exotic flowers, Penzance reflects a more generous climate than the rest of Britain while the golden beaches and blue waters of Mount’s Bay add a touch of the Mediterranean to this friendliest of Cornish towns.
