Chapel Street has a range of the weird and wonderful, the curious facade of the Egyptian House, the even weirder junk shop, a shoot-out on the pub roof and, in startling contrast, the well-ordered goods on display at No. 56 and the lovely items in the antique shop. Something for everyone!

So many nice restaurants its hard to decide! Well maintained street. A nice stroll toward the harbor. Lively on a weekday evening when I was there in October.

Full of character, a must to visit if walking around Penzance. I particularly like the pyramid house.

We often enjoy a walk around Penzance. Many different & interesting buildings. Turks Head & Admiral Benbow are worth a visit.

Loved strolling down this street to the sea front,in the afternoon but it's more enchanting in the evening.the oldest pub in Penzance (Turks head) the admiral Benbow with it's pirate theme was also nice and the Dolphin at the bottom of the hill served lovely fresh sea food. Other places of interest we're St Mary's church, the Methodist church and... More
