We popped in to get out of a rain shower. Wish we'd got wet instead. Drying off would have been more fun!

We really enjoyed our visit to the pirate shop, the entrance going down from the deck added excitement! It makes wondering around the shops a bit more interesting for kids such a good idea. It added to our day in Penzance.

Pure and simply don't bother with this. Really low-quality stuff at extortionate prices. Came here for a pirate-loving friend who wanted a souvenir and left empty-handed as you can get much better elsewhere. Not so much an attraction as a shop.

Uninterested guy, who doesn't acknowledge anyone, looks miserable, surrounded by a bunch of cheap tack that one could buy at any pound shop in the area. A real shame, considering the location of the shop.

Has a few t-shirts, the rest is stuff that is found in most of the other larger gift shops in Penzance. Lacked any kind of imagination or effort, shame as its a good idea.

I can only agree with other reviewers who were disappointed with this attraction. It is just a tourist trash shop in disguise. Shoddy goods at exorbitant prices. The shop assistant looked as if he couldn't wait to lock up and go home. Our grandsons, who usually want to buy everything they see, wanted to leave before the adults wanted to... More

Found the web cite for this and really looked fwd to taking the children here. Review said best equiped pirate shop ever! I must be spoilt rotten here at home, as I can find most of the pirate related items from Bag O' Rags in any average toy shop. I would at least expect the shop keeper to be dressed... More

I thought Penzance would be packed out with pirate themed stuff, but it's not because it's ALL on this amazing boat! The Bag of Rags is in the harbour and seems to be open pretty much all the time - we got some gorgeous little pirate t-shirts and swords for the kids which went down really well. Not just well...
