Penzance's best street

If you are in Penzance make sure you stroll down Chapel Street from the town centre to the harbour. Lots of interesting buildings and fascinating shops on the way.

Wow what an interesting street this is especially the Egyptian building there is such a mix of architecture and building materials it has many interesting types of shops but is a busy thoroughfare with narrow pavements would be of great interest to anyone who likes antiques and old buildings though

It's an interesting street with varied architecture, smashing antique/junk shops and two great pubs, one of them being the oldest in Penzance.

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.

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