Lovely street with many interesting shops to explore---good antiques, books, and an amazing shop filled with handmade utilitarian objects. Also good dining options here. This area of Penzance has great ambiance!

We visited Penzance quite a few years ago......... we had lovely memories of chapel Street with it's variety of different shops. The pubs seem the same but other shops, like so many towns seem to have changed or closed. Still, wonderful architecture and a must to visit.

Perhaps the best street in Penzance for a stroll. Galleries (serious and kitsch), a real independent bookshop, the Egyptian House, cafes, restaurants, antiques, vintage, eastern carpets, pubs - try the Turks' Head or the Admiral Benbow for drinks/food/atmosphere.

Chapel Street is a lovely "Olde World" street, which is quite unique . Have always enjoyed strolling through it. Many different styles of architecture. Make sure you look upwards at the buildings and not just the shop window levels. In the Winter months it is a delight , sniff the air and you will get that lovely real fire smell,... More

I was a little mean in my last review,the place when full of Antiques shops,Pubs and interesting things to sample,has to a greater degree been killed off by the internet world of sales. Now it still has the pubs but more food outlets,so if in need of food & drink you will be well catered here,sadly much else to do... More

Ancient pub, architecture, very nice cemetery. Not all dressed up for tourists, it felt quite genuine.

Great mix of interesting buildings, from the splendour of the Egyptian House to the pirate on the roof of the Admiral Benbow pub. Nice to see some more unusual and independant shops, as well as some quirky little cafes.

Amidst the rather dreary and soul-less centre of Penzance this little street added some much-needed interest, and offered some great history.

Good for Antiques and quirky items. Easy to find and shopkeepers very helpful. But go to town centre first so it will be downhill after to Chapel Street.
