An unexpected surprise of very quirky shops, buildings, churches and old pubs We ate in The Turks Head - the oldest pub in town -and The Admiral Benbow - set up like the inside of a pirate ship!. Both had good food and friendly service

Wonderful boutique shops, excellent and unusual household items, antiques, books--you name it. And the delicious Bakehouse restaurant is off on an alley.

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

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.
