How Local People Attracted £30m Funding – and Secured a Brighter Future for the Town Visitors to Penzance are remarking on a new spirit of confidence and optimism around the town. A growing number of independent shops, a packed calendar of festivals, and dining and drinking options that combine local ingredients with a metropolitan flavour are turning heads in the nation’s press and blogs. Even the Penzance palms at the entranceway to the portside destination seem to be standing taller. Some might say the town is revisiting its Georgian roots as a highly fashionable and prosperous seaside reso ..read more

The Curious and Eccentric Architecture of Penzance: A 30-Minute Walking Tour
Love Penzance Blog
by MartinPhilp
1M ago
One of the biggest themes of modern times is the bland uniformity of our streetscapes. Happily, someone forgot to send the memo to Penzance. For several centuries, it’s been ploughing its own course with a delightful eccentricity. The result is a joyous confusion of styles and creativity that survives to this day. On even a short walk, you’ll take in buildings inspired by Art Deco, neoclassicism, pirate-chic and, er… an Egyptian sarcophagus. If our town were a rock star, it would be David Bowie between 1969 and 1983, living every avatar simultaneously. And it’s an eclectic and inspiring mix re ..read more

Cornwall in spring can be the most bewitchingly romantic time to visit the county. Our famous spring gardens unfurl and shine in their fullest glory. Our seaside villages are still shaking off the quiet of winter and have an air of space and calm. You can even swan up to a restaurant and walk right in without the merest hint of ‘did you book?’ It’s the time, before the arrival of summer crowds, when our county feels like a whispered secret. And there’s no better place to base yourself for a day trip or a week-long visit than Penzance, the portside town that’s the gateway to Cornwall’s spring g ..read more

Stargazing in Cornwall: The Cosmic Wonders of West Penwith

Does the idea of wandering on remote Cornish moors in near-pitch darkness appeal to you? Perhaps not. But how about this? At any moment, you might stop and look up to see a silvery explosion of stars and celestial bodies. So many of them, and so dense, they seem to come at you in waves as your eyes adjust to the wonder. Tens. Hundreds. Thousands. Raining down upon you. This is no ordinary glimpse at a star or two, pecking at the night sky – the kind of thing you might see in a town. This is stargazing in Cornwall at West Penwith. An extraordinary, cosmic experience. In 2021, this southwestern ..read more

From Celtic Crosses to ‘Keef’ Richards: 1000 Years of Visual Arts in Penzance
Love Penzance Blog

Penzance is out there. And we mean that both geographically and artistically. Our position at the westernmost tip of the UK – among wild Celtic moors and even wilder seas – has bred a spirit of creative, bohemian freedom. It’s made Penzance one of the UK’s leading destinations for visual arts. In this post, we’re going to look back over 1000 years of inspiring art in our streets, gardens, museums and galleries. On the way, we’ll meet Newlyn School classics from Norman Garstin and surrealistic pear halves from Jim Moir. We’re also getting help from Penzance’s Cornwall Contemporary gallery owne ..read more

So… you came to West Cornwall to get away from it all? That can be tricky in the height of summer on our most popular beaches. On our high spots, on the other hand? Now you’re talking. Just a stone’s throw from Penzance sit five remote hills where you’ll take in huge swathes of handsomely rugged Cornish moorland. And you’ll have them almost entirely to yourself. These bewitching hills are scattered with granite boulders, and washed in purple heathers and golden gorse. They are also home to many of the 700 or so Neolithic and Bronze Age structures across the 115 miles of West Penwith. Breathtak ..read more
