Penzance is Cornwall’s largest and most westerly borough, located on the shores of Mount’s Bay – a body of water dominated by the grandeur of St. Michael’s Mount.
Only 10 miles from Land’s End, the town is surrounded by an area of Celtic culture and outstanding natural beauty. Majestic cliffs, rocky coves, pristine sandy beaches and crystal clear seas vie with the heather and gorse of the moors and early Christian and Bronze Age sites to form a stunning landscape.
Penzance has the only seashore promenade in Cornwall extending from the harbour towards the fishing port of Newlyn. The harbour is a centre of activity at all times with both a tidal section and a protected "floating" harbour. The town centre, set back a short distance from the harbour, is the focus of commercial activity for the whole Lands End Peninsula, and contains a number of interesting and historic sites.
