The City of Penzance:
On The Map: Penzance is located in Cornwall, in the southwest corner of England, approximately 75 miles west of Plymouth and 300 miles southwest of London.
Penzance is a major tourist and commercial coastal town – the most westerly large settlement in Cornwall. For many, the town is associated with pirates, as a result of the Gilbert & Sullivan comedy ‘The Pirates of Penzance’. Although the town has no real ties to pirates (aside from suffering some Turkish & Spanish pirate raids), it is steeped in history. On the moorland surrounding Penzance, you’ll find an impressive array of Pre-Historic, Neolithic and Bronze Age tombs, monuments and settlements to explore. Some date from more than 5,000 years ago. If the tide is out, you can walk across the causeway to famous St Michael’s Mount (pictured). The picturesque tidal island is home to a fairytale castle, replete with tropical gardens. In Penzance Town , be sure to take a stroll along Chapel Street, which features several characteristic pubs and antique shops. Watch out for Number 25, where Maria Branwell, mother of Charlotte, Anne and Emily Bronte once lived, and have a drink at the ancient Admiral Benbow Inn, immortalized in the opening pages of the classic novel, Treasure Island .
