There may no longer be real pirates running amok in the town’s streets but stunning gardens, beautiful beaches and historic landmarks make Penzance holidays adventure-filled and fascinating nonetheless.
West Cornwall’s mild annual climate has seen the planting of a variety of sub-tropical gardens, the most prominent being that of Morrab Gardens, one of the largest of its kind in Europe and a veritable oasis in the heart of Penzance. Visitors are invited to stroll through the grounds and take in the array of plants, colours and artistic impressions.
Penzance is ideally situated on the coast, and as such is within just a short distance of the many fantastic beaches in the area including Longrock, Marazion, Whitesands Bay at Sennen, Porthcurno and Pedn Vounder beach.
